I am an Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science at College of Management Academic Studies (CV). I am also the head of the best student program and chair of the school's Colloquium. I hold a PhD in Computer Science from Bar-Ilan University. My PhD is in the field of Search Theory and Game Theory and is carried out under the supervision of Prof. David Sarne. My main research interest is in the field of:

  • Multi-Agent Systems
  • Multi-Agent Economic Search/Exploration
  • Search Theory
  • Game Theory
  • Mechanism Design
