Avi Caciularu

Computer Science PhD Student

Bar-Ilan University


I’m a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Bar-Ilan University, advised by Prof. Ido Dagan and Prof. Jacob Goldberger. Prior to that, I received my M.Sc in Electrical Engineering, under the supervision of Prof. David Burshtein, and my B.Sc in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, both from Tel-Aviv University.

My research interests include topics in deep representation learning and their applications for natural language processing, information and coding theory, and recommender systems.
