Dr. Daniel Freedman is a regular faculty member of electrical engineering at Technion — Israel Institute of Technology, and a visiting professor of electronics engineering and computer science at Peking University, Beijing. Reflecting his academic upbringing, Freedman’s research agenda is interdisciplinary in nature — centering upon new approaches to ultrafast / distributed computation, empirical methods for performance evaluation of systems, and programming models to address scalability, reliability, and security of enterprise information systems. He currently chairs the steering committee for Beijing 3-Day Startup and serves as faculty advisor to the Technion 3-Day Startup; he formerly held external scientific-advisory roles at early-stage venture-capital funds in the United States. Prior to his faculty appointment, Freedman worked as a post-doctoral research associate in computer science at Cornell University and earlier received his MSc and PhD in theoretical physics, also from Cornell, and his SB in physics from MIT. He enjoys photography and appreciates horology.
