Born on January 2, 1953, in Haifa. I am married to Shimona, who is a principal of a special education high school. We have five children.
I got all my academic degrees at the Technion, all in Mathematics. I got my B.Sc. in 1973, my M.Sc. in 1976, and my D.Sc. in 1982.
I have been a faculty at the Technion since 1985 (full professor since 1996).
Among others, I served at the Technion as the President of the Disciplinary Court for students, as the Head of the Division of Continuing Education and External Studies (4 years), and as the Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics (5 years). Currently I am the Head of the Technion Faculty Association.
I am an Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor of the journal "Electronic journal of Linear Algebra" (ELA) and a Senior Editor of the journal "Linear Algebra and its Applications".
Since 2002 I am the President of the International Linear Algebra Society (I got relected in 2005).
Independently of my academic career, I am the Rabbi of the neighborhood of Ahuza, Haifa. I am also fulfilling many other public duties.
