Michael Langberg





I am an associate professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at The Open University of Israel. I am currently on leave in the Electrical Engineering Department at the State University of New York at Buffalo. I completed my PhD studies at the Weizmann Institute of Science and was a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech.



My research addresses the algorithmic and combinatorial aspects of information in communication, management, and storage. I have special interest in information theory, coding theory, network communication and network coding, big data in the form of succinct data representation via geometric clustering, and probabilistic methods in combinatorics.

  2. Workshop on Network Coding (NetCod), Beijing, China, July 2011 (TPC member).
