Personal profile

About Me

I received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering in 1998 from Tel-Aviv University, Israel .I was a post-doctoral fellow in the computer vision group at the Weizmann institute and later I was a post doctoral fellow in the machine learning group at the University of Toronto. In 2005 I joined the engineering department at Bar-Ilan University, Israel.

My work focuses on Machine Learning algorithms. My research deals with developing and analyzing novel efficient statistical algorithms for learning and inference, and applying these algorithms to a large variety of applications such as computer vision, signal processing, medical image processing and natural language processing.


My research deals with developing and analyzing novel efficient algorithms for learning and inference, and applying these algorithms in challenging real-world domains. My research interests are mainly related to statistical machine learning and more specifically to the fields of graphical models and deep learning. Deep learning methods attempt to model high-level abstractions in data by using a deep graph with multiple processing layers, composed of multiple linear and non-linear transformations. As often pointed out, the same machine learning models and algorithms can be applied in many different research areas. In my research I concentrate on developing and analyzing those algorithms in the context of classical machine learning tasks (classification, regression, clustering, dimensionality reduction etc.) and applying them to a large variety of real world applications (computer vision, language processing, audio processing, medical imaging etc.).
