About Me

Since October 2016, I am a Rudolf Mößbauer Tenure Track Assistant Professor at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. My TUM website can be found here.

My research group is funded by the TUM Institute of Advanced Studies and the DFG Emmy Noether research program.

My main research interests are coding theory, efficient algorithms, and applications of error-correcting codes like network coding, coding for memories, and distributed data storage.

From November 2013 to August 2016, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Computer Science Department of the Technion---Israel Institute of Technology. My hosts were Tuvi Etzion and Eitan Yaakobi.

From June 2015 to August 2016, I was a recipient of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship from the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 program.

From November 2013 until May 2015, I was funded by a Minerva Postdoctoral Fellowship.

From October 2009 to October 2013, I did my PhD under the co-supervision of Martin Bossert at the Institute of Communications Engineering, Ulm University, Germany, and Pierre Loidreau at the Institut de Recherche Mathématique de Rennes (IRMAR), Université de Rennes 1, Rennes, France.

I defended my PhD thesis "Decoding of Block and Convolutional Codes in Rank Metric" on October 4, 2013. You can download it here.
