I am now an Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. My new web site is here.

About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT, working with Prof. Martin Rinard. Before that I spent more than 12 years as a Research Staff Member and, part of that time, as a manager in IBM Research - Haifa, Israel. I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Toronto and both M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.

My research interests are in applying software analysis and transformation techniques to facilitate:

  • software security and data privacy,
  • functionality-based development, including functionality restriction, transfer and repair,
  • reuse, product families and multi-platform development.


A selected list of publications is below. A full list is available in DBLP and Google Scholar.
