Ofir Geri


I am a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University. I am fortunate to be advised by Moses Charikar. Prior to that, I earned an M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from Tel-Aviv University, where I was advised by Michal Feldman.

My research interests are in algorithms and theoretical computer science, particularly approximation algorithms, online algorithms, and algorithmic game theory.
