People > Udi Weinsberg


I received my PhD from Tel-Aviv University, Israel, school of Electrical Engineering, in 2011, from where I also got my M.Sc. in 2007. I received my B.Sc. (2001) in Electrical Engineering from the Israeli Technion. While in Tel-Aviv, I was a member of the NetDIMES group, mapping the Internet. During my PhD studies, I had the pleasure of being an intern in Technicolor lab in Paris, France and in Intel Labs in Berkeley, CA.
