I believe in utilizing and influencing technology as a scalable tool for change. Much of my experience is in machine learning, information security, large-scale system design and development, algorithmics, and game theory - but I'm interested in almost all domains in technology (and mathematics).
Karmel group at Google
Founder and Manager (2017-2023)
I founded and grew the Karmel group to 70 people, dedicated to using machine learning for humanitarian, global development, and climate-related efforts. Our Flood Forecasting Initiative covers over 400 million people globally, the Open Buildings Dataset tripled the number of buildings mapped in Africa, Project Green Light reduces CO2 emissions in cities across four continents, and more.
Information Security Course
I taught the Introduction to Information Security course at Tel Aviv university. The course is known for being exceptionally in-depth, hands-on, and practically useful. Over the years, hundreds of students with no prior experience in security got jobs in the industry after taking the course.
