Research Staff Member
I started working at IBM Research as an intern in parallel to my studies towards a BSc in computer science in the Technion (Technion - Israel institute of technology) and transitioned into a full time position after completing my BSc in 2016. Since early 2017, I became deeply involved in the architecture and development of Hyperledger Fabric (and proud to have the third biggest commit counter :-) https://github.com/hyperledger/fabric/graphs/contributors). I became a maintainer of the Fabric core in January 2017, and designed and implemented a large portion of its aspects and features, such as: - The gossip communication, membership, and message dissemination layer - Fabric's service discovery service - Co-designed and implemented the Raft ordering service, focusing on its communication and replication infrastructure. I have presented design and work 3 times during our community playback series (https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/fabric/Playbacks) and was an active participant in the rest of the sessions. Since mid 2019, I am leading the development of an a Byzantine Fault Tolerant (BFT) ordering service for Hyperledger Fabric (https://github.com/SmartBFT-Go/) which is used in production by one of the world's largest mining companies (https://www.coindesk.com/russian-metals-firm-norilsk-nickel-backs-ibms-responsible-sourcing-blockchain-pact). During my career in IBM Research I have authored several academic papers (https://dblp.org/pid/200/1306.html) on blockchains, and have served as a session chair in https://icbc2020.ieee-icbc.org/short-paper-sessions as well as a paper reviewer. In addition, I've been a part of IBM's international blockchain patent review board which entails inventing, presenting and judging disclosures.
