News: I will be joining Cornell ORIE as an Assistant Professor in July 2023, following a year-long postdoc period split between UC Berkeley, MIT, and Harvard.

Hi! I'm Ziv (he/him), a research fellow at the UC Berkeley Simons Institute, where I am participating in the Data-Driven Decision Processes program. I recently completed my PhD in CMU's Computer Science Department under advisors Mor Harchol-Balter and Guy Blelloch.

I am interested in scheduling, queueing theory, resource allocation, and decision-making under uncertainty more broadly.

Below is a video describing a research project of mine. It won the Best Video Award at SIGMETRICS 2020. My talks page has additional videos, slides, and more.
