the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1983 and had visiting positions in
various research institutes including MIT, Harvard, the Institute for Advanced
Study in Princeton, IBM Almaden Research Center, Bell Laboratories,
Bellcore and Microsoft Research (Redmond and Israel).
He joined Tel Aviv University in 1985,
served as the head of the School of Mathematical Sciences in 1999-2000,
and moved to Princeton in 2018.
He supervised more than 20 PhD students.
He serves on the editorial boards of more
than a dozen international technical journals and has given invited
lectures in many conferences, including plenary addresses in the 1996
European Congress of Mathematics and in the 2002 International Congress
of Mathematicians. He published more than six hundred research
papers and one book.
His research interests are mainly in Combinatorics, Graph Theory
and their applications in Theoretical Computer Science. His main
contributions include the study of expander graphs and their applications,
the investigation of derandomization techniques, the foundation of
streaming algorithms, the development and applications of algebraic and
probabilistic methods in Discrete Mathematics and the study of problems
in Information Theory, Combinatorial Geometry and Combinatorial
