About me

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the department of Information, Operations, and Management Sciences at NYU Stern School of Business.

I received a Ph.D. in Operations Research from MIT in August 2015, a MS degree in Electrical Engineering, and a BS degree in Aerospace Engineering both from the Technion - IIT. In 2015-2016, I was a postdoctoral research scientist at Google NYC in the Algorithms and Theory team, conducting research across multiple areas including market algorithms, pricing, auctions, cloud computing, and optimization. At Google, I have also worked on products related to cloud computing, contracts for online advertising, and Internet domain names. I previously worked in finance as a high-frequency trader, and co-founded a private real-estate investment company.

My research lies at the intersection of data analytics and operations management. More specifically, I am interested in pricing applications such as retail, ride-sharing, airline, sustainability, cloud computing, online advertising, and social networks. I have collaborated on research and consulting projects with different companies including Google, Oracle Retail, IBM Research, Accenture, Via (ride-sharing), Staples as well as several startups. In each project, I work closely with the company to identify a practical operational problem and help guide practitioners through pricing decisions using tools such as optimization, machine learning, stochastic modeling, and game theory.

I am co-organizing the first-ever annual New York City Operations Day that will take place at NYU Stern on March 2, 2018.
