I am a PhD student at the Blavatnik School of Computer Science of Tel Aviv University. My PhD advisors are Prof. Daniel Deutch and Prof. Jonathan Berant. I am also serving as a research intern at the Allen Institute for AI.

My area of research lies at the intersection of Data Management and Natural Language Processing. I am interested in developing algorithms that are capable of understanding complex questions over a multitude of domains, and to endow them with an ability to justify and explain their results.

Prior to my PhD, I received my B.Sc and M.Sc in computer science at Tel Aviv University, under the supervision of Prof. Daniel Deutch.
