Participated in Technion Excellence Program: October 1998 – September 2000.
Yoav included advanced courses in his curriculum without having to take their pre-requisites.
In his PhD thesis: “Efficient Algorithms for the Runtime Environment of Object-Oriented Languages”, under the guidance of Dr. Yossi Gil from the Faculty of Computer Science, he designs efficient algorithms for fundamental problems in the runtime of OOL languages such as subtyping tests, message dispatching and object layout.
After his Post-doc in MIT, Yoav was the CTO and co-founder of the comapny Come2Play.
Recommendation to program participants: “Take it slow. I finished my BA in 2 years, but I didn’t have a social life. There is no rush! Enjoy life :)”
Today (2017): Yoav is working for Google NYC on video ads, and teaching a multiplayer gaming course in NYU.
