I am a PhD student collaborating with the ASIC2 lab. My advisors are Professors Ran Ginosar and Avi Mendelson, and my research topic is in Hardware Security. I received my BSc and MSc also from the Technion. All the degrees are in Electrical Engineering. Prior to starting the study towards PhD, I served at different technical and managerial positions at National Semiconductor, Winbond Electronics and Nuvoton Technologies companies. My research interests include test mode side channel attacks, secure hardware architecture and security with memristors.
