    Currently serves as the Head of Sustainability program and Academic director of the cadet program for local government administration at Tel Hai Academic College.
    I served as a scientific advisor to Mr. Mordechai Cohen, former CEO of the Ministry of the Interior. As part of this role, I led an interdisciplinary team including various government ministries, Academics, and private bodies to develop tools for municipal economic and sustainable development. Products of this team were presented at the UN Habitat Conference. I have also co-led an OECD workshop on economic development in rural authorities. In collaboration with the director of the Economic Development Division of the Ministry of the Interior, we wrote a study analyzing the economic disparities between local authorities in Israel.
    I hold a Postdoctoral fellowship from Columbia University in New York, and a graduate of MIMSHAK Program for Training Scientists as Advisors to Senior Government Officials.
