I am an Associate Professor at the Technion's Mathematics Department.
My main research
interests lie in the various aspects of Asymptotic Convex Geometric
Analysis. This is
the study of geometric structures satisfying appropriate convexity
conditions from a geometric and analytic point of view, with an
emphasis on the asymptotic dependence (or independence) of various
parameters on the underlying dimension.
Examples of such structures include bounded convex domains in Euclidean
space R^{n},
Banach spaces (possibly infinite dimensional), Riemannian manifolds
with nonnegative (Ricci)
curvature, and other generalizations. Since its conception at the
intersection
of classical Convex Geometry and the local theory of Banach
spaces, the field of Asymptotic Convex Geometric Analysis has been
evolving constantly, and has uncovered connections to many other
fields, such as
Probability Theory, PDE, Riemannian Geometry, Harmonic Analysis,
Mathematical Physics, Combinatorics, Graph Theory and Learning Theory.
Some of my related
research
interests include isoperimetric, functional and concentration
inequalities, the interplay between
geometry and
spectral properties of Riemannian manifolds, geometry of isoperimetric
minimizing
surfaces,
Geometric Measure Theory, diffusion semigroup and heatkernel
estimates in
convex manifolds, optimal transport, distribution of volume in convex
bodies, classical Convex Geometry, “local
theory” of Banach
Spaces, convexity
in graphs, metric entropy and
covering numbers, empirical processes, general phenomena in high
dimensions, Integral Geometry.
