Edith Cohen (E-deet)
I was born in
Tel Aviv ,
Israel , next to the
my parents Amy and Eliahu. Soon after I was joined
by my sister Mirit and then my brother Menashe.
We were raised mostly in Tel Aviv, but spent
several years of our childhood in Arad, which is a small town
in the Negev desert.
My parents, Mirit, and Menash happily live in Tel Aviv.
Mirit married Lior and they have two great kids, Dana (born November 11, 95)
and Amit (born March 11, 99).
My father is now retired and was, for many years, the head of the
foreign exchange and money market operations of
Israel Discount Bank.
I met my husband, Alex Wang, at the Stanford computer science
We had great time at Stanford, and years later
went back to Stanford to get married, in August 1996.
Alex is a managing director in Arbitrade
, and before that was a partner at
D. E. Shaw and Co..
He was born in NC, USA, and
grew up in Chicago , and he loves hamburgers, The Bulls,
and The Bears.
I always think it is quite a miracle that we managed
to find each other. We greatly enjoy our two sons,
born on August 29th, 1997, and Ben, born on November 20th, 1999. We currently live on two coasts, in NJ and CA, and
often spend time on a third, in Tel Aviv.
Aside from my family and research, I enjoy outdoors and
exercise in a variety of forms, including (but not limited to...)
hiking, skiing, cycling,
swimming, basketball, scuba diving, and tennis.
I love oceans deserts and mountains and have special thing for
the Red Sea, the Pacific, and ofcourse the Meditterenean.
