Develops mathematical tools for computation, privacy and machine learning
Netanel Raviv's research revolves around applications of various mathematical tools to problems in distributed environments, privacy and machine learning. The focus is given on the design of provable methods which provide noise resiliency, adversarial robustness and information-theoretic privacy in distributed computation and storage. Prof. Raviv is mostly interested in tools from error correcting codes and discrete mathematics, and applications such as neural networks, cloud computing and private information retrieval.
Raviv joined the McKelvey School of Engineering from the California Institute of Technology on Oct. 1, 2019, where he was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Electrical Engineering. Previously, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Tel-Aviv University in Israel. During his PhD he interned at IBM, Microsoft, MIT and the University of Toronto. He is a recipient of the IBM PhD fellowship and the first prize in the Feder family competition for best student work in communication technology.
