  • I am specialized in Natural Resources Economics, Development, and Game Theory. In the last decade, I foster financial innovations for development in water and energy sectors in Israel, the spatial planning of marine areas to support a sustainable blue economy in the East Mediterranean Sea, and the development of economic mechanisms for sustainable agricultural practices. Such mechanisms have a direct impact on market power and market efficiency, community cooperation, and economic sustainability. Mechanisms include fair trade systems, artificial markets for natural goods, payments for ecosystem services, and auction mechanisms.
