Dorit Aharonov is a professor in the Computer Science department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which she joined in 2001. Before and after that she spent long periods of time (as a postdoc and visiting researcher) at IAS Princeton, UC Berkeley and Caltech. Her main research interest is the mysterious nature of quantum entanglement and related beautiful mathematical objects. Technically, her current research lies mostly in the areas of quantum computational complexity, quantum algorithms and quantum cryptography. Besides quantum computation, she is also interested in (quantum and classical) games, random processes, Markov chains and phase transitions, topology and other beautiful mathematics, Feldenkreis, Kung-Fu, deserts, hiking and snorkeling.
