Benny Sudakov
I am a Professor of
Mathematics at ETH, Zurich.
Before coming to ETH,
I enjoyed the hospitality of
University of California, Los Angeles,
Princeton University and Institute for Advanced Study.
I got my Ph.D. in 1999 from the School
of Mathematical Sciences, Tel Aviv University. My advisor was Noga Alon.
My work is supported by
SNSF grant 200021_196965.
