About Me

I am a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at The University of Texas at Austin. I am a member of the Learning Agents Research Group (LARG), advised by Professor Peter Stone. My research focuses on designing learning agents for solving sustainable energy problems. Prior to joining the Ph.D. program at UT Austin, I completed a dual major B.Sc in computer science and mathematics, and an M.Sc in computer science, both at Tel Aviv University.


News:

Feb 2015: I won 2nd place in the UT Energy Week Research Competition, in the category ''Generation, Distribution & Markets''.

Dec 2013: Best Contribution Award in NIPS 2013 workshop on Machine Learning for Sustainability for the paper: ''TacTex'13: A Champion Adaptive Power Trading Agent''.

July 2013: We won first place in the Power Trading Agent Competition (PowerTAC) with our new TacTex agent.

July 2011: We won first place at the the international RoboCup 2011 competition in the 3D simulation league with our team UT Austin Villa. [details]
