Ziv Goldfeld is an assistant professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and a graduate field member in Computer Science, Statistics and Data Science, and the Center of Applied Mathematics at Cornell University. Before joining Cornell, he was a postdoctoral research fellow in LIDS at MIT, hosted by Yury Polyanskiy. Ziv graduated with a B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. (all summa cum laude) in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Ben Gurion University, Israel. His graduate advisor was Haim Permuter.
Ziv’s research interests include optimal transport theory, statistical learning theory, information theory, and applied probability. He seeks to understand the theoretical foundations of modern inference and information processing systems by formulating and solving mathematical models. Honors include the NSF CAREER Award, the IBM University Award, and the Rothschild Postdoctoral Fellowship.
