About

Wasim Huleihel received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in 2012 and 2013 from Ben-Gurion University, respectively, and received his PhD degree in 2017 from the Technion, all in electrical engineering. He spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Tel Aviv University. He currently is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Tel Aviv University.
