I’m a PhD candidate at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Faculty, Technion under the supervision of Prof. Ittay Eyal and Prof. Aviv Tamar. In addition, I’m a member of the Technion Hiroshi Fujiwara Cyber Security Research Center and the Initiative for Cryptocurrencies & Contracts.
My research interests include blockchain protocols and reinforcement learning. The goal of my research is to ensure the security of blockchain protocols. I mainly analyze incentive compatibilty, i.e., trying to understand whether miners are incentivized to behave as intended. This is a crucial security aspect of blockchains due to their anonymous and distributed nature. To perform my analyses, I utilize state-of-the-art deep reinforcement learning to find optimal mining strategies.
I received my BSc (Cum Laude) in applied mathematics from Bar-Ilan University and my MSc (Cum Laude) in computer science from Technion.
