Guess from the picture on the right, I am a lecturer in the Jerusalem School of Business Administration, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
I got my Ph.D. in Operations Research in 2005, from the School of Mathematical Sciences, Tel-Aviv University. My advisor was Prof. Arik Tamir.
I was a post-doc in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. My hosts are Prof. David Simchi-Levi. and Prof. James Orlin.
Before that, I was also a post-doc fellow in the Faculty of Industrial Engineering & Management, at the Israel Institute of Technology (Technion). My hosts were Prof. Shmuel Onn and Prof. Uri G. Rothblum.
Besides that, I'm interested in: backpacking, panoramic photography, jogging, biology, volcanoes and languages.
To my great luck my beloved wife, Tali, shares with me most of those interests.
Last summers we were trekking and had a lot of adventures, as you can read and see, in South America, Africa, Iceland, Nepal, Italy/Switzerland, in India and in Ecuador/Peru.
