Short Bio

I'm a graduate student at the Computer Science Department of the Technion in Israel (MSc, July 2015).
My research is focused on Software Analysis, Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Big Data [dissertation].
My Advisor is the one and only Prof. Eran yahav.
I am interested in security and mobile, especially Android. While being an undergrad student (BSc in Extended Software Engineering from the Technion (Psagot). November 2014), I took part of a cool project that gained worldwide media coverage. Our goal was to test whether Waze is susceptible to Sybil Attack.
I am also a Real-Time systems software developer in an algorithmic team at the Israeli Air Forces. We deal with complex mathematical problems and long term projects.
