Dina Barak-Pelleg.  Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics (2019-2023) and M.Sc. in Industrial Mathematics (2016-2019) from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) in applied probability in cyber and combinatorial optimization. Graduated with excellence in M.Sc. studies. In her M.Sc., she studied probabilistic methods in combinatorial optimization problems (SAT and MAXSAT). In particular, the satisfiability threshold of a model of industrial SAT. During her Ph.D. studies, she focused on applications and extensions of the Coupon Collection Problem. In particular, the defense against denial-of-service cyber-attacks. She recently completed a Short-Term Post Doctoral Studies (April 2023 - September 2023) at BGU. Dina has published five peer-reviewed manuscripts in academic international journals. She has received several prizes and honors awards: Zabei Prize (2020), Hillel Gauchman Scholarship (2022), Dean's List for Ph.D. Students (2022), STEM Women Scientist Day Honors for Excellence in Ph.D. Research (2022)
