Short Bio

Dr. Stein is a faculty member at the Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo in the Computer Science Department.

She recieved a B.Sc. from the Technion, Haifa, Israel, in Computer Science. Dr. Stein received her M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Haifa University, Haifa, Israel.

Her main areas of research interest are Reconfigurable Networks, Parallel Programming and Compiler Optimizations.

Much of her work has been on improving the performance of programs by developing parallel architectural platforms including compiler optimizations for those platforms. 

She works currently on developing a reconfigurable network, which hopefully competes with the FPGA on computing Boolean Circuits faster.
