Hello, hello! I'm Zachi Tamo, a faculty member at the Department of EE Systems at Tel Aviv University.

Before coming to Tel Aviv, I was a post-doc at the University of Maryland in the ECE/ISR department advised by Professor Alexander Barg.


Research interests:

      Storage systems and devices

      Computer systems design, analysis, and fault tolerance

      Coding theory

      Data analysis




      Our paper "Zigzag Codes: MDS Array Codes with Optimal Rebuilding", published in IEEE Transaction on Information Theory, received the IEEE Communication Society Data Storage Technical Committee 2013 Best Paper Award.

      A video of a recent talk I gave at Simons Institute (UC Berkeley) on Locally Recoverable Codes.
