Accepting PhD Students

Personal profile


My work is primarily in dynamical systems, specifically in aperiodic order. My research is focused on problems concerning the distribution of point sets, tilings and mathematical models of quasicrystals, and the ways in which certain aspects of order and disorder manifest themselves. These problems lie at the interface between dynamical systems, number theory and metric geometry, with strong connections to mathematical physics and combinatorics.

Previously I was a Hill Assistant Professor at Rutgers University and an Orzen postdoctoral fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Before that I have obtained my PhD from Tel Aviv University under the supervision of Barak Weiss.
