Short Bio

Adam is a senior lecturer at the school of computer science at the Tel-Aviv-Yaffo academic college.

Adam formerly served four years as a senior lecturer and math division head at Tel-Hai College, two years as a postdoctoral fellow and one year as a visiting scientist at UCLouvain (stay sponsored by Wallonie-Bruxelles-International).

Adam studied at Bar-Ilan University all the way from Bachelor’s through PhD. The master’s and PhD theses were written under the supervision of Uzi Vishne. More recently, Adam co-advised a master’s student, Itai Rosenbaum, together with Vishne.

Adam likes music, both listening and playing. Adam plays the cello, piano and viola da gamba, and also is an active tenor singer at Shahar choir.
