I left school in 1987 with A-levels in Mathematics, Physics, and Computer science.

I started my high education in 1988 at Technion
Institute of Technology in Mathematics and Computer science. I received
my B.S.C degree in 1992 and then I started my next step, M.S.C degree,
at Technion Institute of Technology in Algebra (symmetric groups) with **
Professor
Arye Juhasz. **

I married on July 1995 to **Ronit **Damen Rachroch. Now, I have three girls:** Itar
(12 January 1996), Atil (25 June 2001), Hadel (17 January 2006).**

I restart my education in 1998 at Haifa
University with ** Doctor
Valdamir Hinich **in Algebra (Pure Mathematics). In 1999, I received
my M.A. Degree in Pure Mathematics with Thesis in "Different approaches
to the representations theory of the symmetric groups".

In 1999, I started my PhD in Combinatorics (Forbidden patterns in
permutations) with ** Professor
Alek Vainshtein**. I received my Doctorate in 2001, then immediately
I started my first year of postdoctoral position (**Grant: Bourse Chateaubriand
2001-2002**) in Laboratoire Bordelais
de Recherche Informatique (LaBRI) with supporter ** Professor
Alexandre Zvonkine**.

In 2002-2003, I did my second year of postdoctoral position, Chalmers
University of Technology with
**Professor Einar Steingrimsson** (Gothenborg, Sweden) and Linkoping
University with ** Professor
Svante Linusson** (Linkoping, Sweden) (**Supporter: EC's IHRP programme, within the
Research Training Network "Algebraic Combinatorics in Europe", Grant
HPRN-CT-2001-00272**).

2003-2007, Senior lecturer in Department of Mathematics, University of Haifa, financed
by a prestigious **Maof grant** from the Council for Higher Education.
