I am an associate professor at the School of Mathematical Sciences at Tel Aviv University. My areas of interest include various branches of extremal and probabilistic combinatorics and Ramsey theory, as well as some topics in statistical mechanics and additive number theory. Between October 2010 and June 2014, I was enjoying the generosity of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge as a junior research fellow and the School of Mathematical Sciences at Tel Aviv University as a post-doctoral researcher hosted by Noga Alon, Michael Krivelevich, and Ron Peled. I completed my PhD at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May 2010 under the supervision of Jozsi Balogh. Prior to coming to Urbana-Champaign, I received master's degrees in mathematics and computer science from the University of Wrocław.
