My research focuses on two main issues:
(1) The distribution, ecology, and control of invasive plant
species in natural areas in Israel;
(2) The sustainable management of planted pine forests in the
Mediterranean region of Israel, with a special emphasis on their
transition from actual coniferous mono-specific stands to pines
and oaks mixed forest structures.
I conduct ecological impact assessments
for Israeli companies who are producing environment impact assessments.
I am working as a consultant
in ecology issues for the Department of open areas at the Israel
Ministry of Environment.
I am also teaching ecology at
the Geography department of the Liphschitz College in Jerusalem.
Between Feb. 2000 to Feb. 2004,
I worked as a lecturer & researcher at the Geography Department
of the Tel-Aviv University, where I taught biogeography, ecology
and geography of man-vegetation interactions in the Mediterranean
I am currently completing a post-doctorate
degree at the Department of Natural Resources, Institute of Field
and Garden Crops, Agricultural Research Organization, P. O. Box
