Gil Cohen's homepage

Welcome! I am a faculty member at the Department of Computer Science at Tel Aviv University. I am working on pseudo-randomness, explicit constructions, and coding theory. Of particular interest are randomness extractors, derandomization of space-bounded computation, spectral graph theory, tree codes, locally decodable and correctable codes, and algebraic-geometric codes.

In the coming semester I will give a graduate-level seminar on randomness extractors. See the seminar homepage for details.


All my papers are available online. Next to some are video talks.
