I am a graduate student in the Science, Technology and Society program. Since 2015 I work for Sikkuy, a Jewish-Arab NGO promoting civic equality and partnership, where I am co-director of the Shared Society department and founder of its project for Arab representation in the Media. Formally I was a journalist at Haaretz and deputy director of UNIK, a Tel Aviv media consultancy firm, focusing on civil society and political campaigns. 


I teach Media and Social change at Ben Gurion University (formally also at IDC Herzliya) and occasionally I like to write op-eds and articles for "Haaretz" and "the 7the eye". Before that I used to blog and co-founded the late "Café Gibraltar" magazine. 


My main academic and professional interest is the intersection between mass media and social change movements. I mostly write about minority media representations, media accountability and the social implications of the disinformation and media literacy crisis.


I live in Herzliya with my partner Ardith and our beloved children Neomi and Yair. During the rest of the time I'm an avid long distance runner and Uruguayan football fan.
