Ph.D. Agricultural and Resources Economics (University of California, 2004)
M.Sc. Agricultural Economics (Hebrew University, Israel, 1998)
B.A. Economics (Tel Aviv University, 1994)
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.
