Ynet (via Hacker News):

The first major milestone of Lempel’s oeuvre came in 1977 when he and his colleague Prof. Jacob Ziv published LZ77, the first version of the Lempel-Ziv algorithm, which was followed up the very next year with LZ78.

He taught electrical engineering and computer science at the Technion and in 1981-1984 served as the dean of the Taub Computer Science Faculty. In 1993 he was recruited to HP Laboratories and a year later he founded and managed HP Laboratories Israel.
