**Roy Meshulam**is a Professor of Mathematics at the Technion. He has worked in a number of areas, including applications of harmonic analysis to combinatorics and extremal problems for spaces of matrices. In recent years his main research interests have been applications of algebraic topology to discrete geometry and random simplicial complexes.
