Dr. Amichai Painsky

I am a Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) and the head of the Statistics and Data Science Lab at the Industrial Engineering department of Tel Aviv University. 

I received my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering (EE) from Tel Aviv University (2007) and my Masters' in EE from Princeton University (2009). I earned my Ph.D. in Statistics at Tel Aviv University (2016)

under the joint supervision of Prof. Meir Feder from the EE department and Prof. Saharon Rosset from the Statistics department.

Following my graduation, I spent two years as a Post Doctoral Fellow, jointly affiliated with the Israeli Center of Research Excellence (hosted by Prof. Naftali Tishby) and the Signals, Information and Algorithms Lab at MIT (hosted by Prof. Gregory Wornell).

In addition, I held several research positions in the industry, mostly in algorithm design for machine learning and data science.
