M.Phil., Environmental Studies, 2015, Yale University, School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. B.Sc. Nutrition Science, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Faculty of Agriculture, Food, and Environment, 2005.
My research centers on business and the environment, specifically how sustainability shapes consumer perceptions, preferences, and choices. In my work, I draw from the fields of industrial ecology and behavioral economics. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, I combine methods such as life cycle assessment (LCA) and big data analysis with psychological experiments to investigate topics such as business strategy, the circular economy, and sustainable food systems.
Before attending Yale I was a consultant to the Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection and the leader of the joint ministerial project for well-being indicators. Prior to my work on well-being, I was awarded a Koret-Milken institute fellowship where I focused on green building policy and sustainable consumption.
