Short Bio

Gil completed his BSc in Mathematics and Physics in the Hebrew university in Jerusalem; his MSc and PhD in Mathematics were received in Tel Aviv University; the latter, under the supervision of Prof. Marcel Herzog, was focused on a problem in permutation groups. He published till now (2020) over 40 papers, many of them in leading journals like Journal of Group Theory, Journal of Algebra and Archiv der Mathematik. Gil was a regular guest in Bielefeld University, Germany, Vienna University of Technology, Berlin Free University, Würzburg University, Germany and Valencia University, Spain, where he gave many colloquium talks on his work. Gil supervised till now one student in the second degree programme of the Academic College Tel Aviv Yaffo; the work supervised was focused on regular decompositions of graphs.

Gil's areas of interest include Group Theory, Combinatory and some philosophical subjects.
