Research Interests:

Information theory and its applications, Statistical signal and image processing


A bit about me:
I received my B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Technion.
After postdocing with the Statistics Department at Stanford and with Hewlett-Packard Laboratories,
in 2003 I joined the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford, 
from which I am on leave since my arrival at Technion in summer of 2007.
My research interests span information theory and its applications, and statistical signal processing. 
My papers thus far have focused mostly on data compression, communications, prediction, 
denoising, and learning. I am an inventor of several patents in these areas and involved in a number of 
high-tech companies as a researcher or member of the technical board. These involvements are both 
rewarding in their own right and key to motivating much of my research.
