Ronitt Rubinfeld is a professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT and a professor of computer sciences at Tel-Aviv University, Israel.


Rubinfeld graduated from the University of Michigan with a BSE in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Following that, she received her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley under the supervision of Manuel Blum.[1]


Rubinfeld's research interests include randomized and sublinear time algorithms. In particular, her work focuses on what can be understood about data by looking at only a very small portion of it.

Awards and honors[edit]

She gave an invited lecture at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2006.[2] She became a fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery in 2014 for contributions to delegated computation, sublinear time algorithms and property testing.[3]
