  • Currently the Dean of the faculty of social sciences and humanities at Te-Hai College. Finished 1st and 2nd degree in the Hebrew university and Ph.D. at the university of Minnesota.
    Besides teaching and doing research, I am also involved in public consultation on my research issues.

  • My main field of research is environmental economics. Within this field I am doing Cost-Benefit-Analysis of nature conservation based on non-market valuation. Topics such as the economics of endangered species, open spaces and ecological services are in the focus of my current research. Besides that, I deal also with water resources economics and recently (2013) edited a book (Springer publishing) on Water Policy in Israel.
