Yair Carmonיאיר כרמון


I am an assistant professor (מרצה בכיר) in Tel Aviv University’s School of Computer Science. I completed my PhD at Stanford University in 2020, advised by John Duchi and Aaron Sidford. Prior to that, I obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, where I worked with Shlomo Shamai and Tsachy Weissman.

My research interests are in machine learning, optimization and statistics. I particularly like understanding (and getting around) fundamental limits. My current focus is making machine learning and optimization algorithms robust and reliable.

My name is pronounced Yah-ear (here it is with the Hebrew pronunciation of 'r' ).
