Assaf Rinot is an Associate Professor at the department of Mathematics, Bar-Ilan University.

He received a Ph.D. from Tel Aviv University in 2011, under the supervision of Moti Gitik. He was then a postdoc of Uri Abraham at Ben-Gurion university, and a Fields-Ontario postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Stevo Todorcevic, William Weiss, and Ilijas Farah.

Rinot’s research is in combinatorial set theory, especially around the combinatorics of singular cardinals.
