I am a postdoctoral fellow at Tel Aviv University for the 2013-2014 academic year working under the supervision of Prof. Zeev Rudnick.
In May 2013, I completed a PhD at the University of Rochester under the guidance of Prof. Steven Gonek.
Research interests: analytic and probabilistic number theory, L-functions, multiplicative functions, classical automorphic forms.
