Hi! I'm Ziv (he/him), an NSF FODSI postdoc at Harvard SEAS and MIT CSAIL, under the mentorship of Michael Mitzenmacher and Piotr Indyk. I will be joining Cornell ORIE as an assistant professor in July 2023. I recently completed my PhD in CMU's Computer Science Department under advisors Mor Harchol-Balter and Guy Blelloch, after which I was a fellow at the UC Berkeley Simons Instiute for the Data-Driven Decision Processes program.

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.
