If you got here, you might know already that I am an Assistant Professor at Brown University, but you may not know yet what are the things I am currently concerned about. I therefore encourage you to browse through my latest updates, or switch quickly to the CV and research pages to read about what I actually do. Please contact me, if you would like to discuss any of this, or happen to be a secret fan.
Random comments regarding my name
- If you cite any of my papers, note that my surname is “Cohen Priva”, not “Priva”. I know that it does not follow the American hyphenation pattern, and I might yield in future publications, but it’s “Cohen Priva, Uriel” not “Uriel C. Priva”
- I pronounce my name /uʁi’el/, but you can use your native liquid(s) if you drop the American English initial /j/. My name begins with an aleph (א), not a yod (י).
- The Hebrew spelling is אוריאל כהן פריווה, but the transliteration from Arabic is misleading. The original name had a /w/, not a /v/.
