Associate Teaching Fellow

Architecture Track

Lecturer and researcher in the field of politics of space. My research focuses on spatialities of power and resistance; contested and shared urban spaces; and the political history of shared urban spaces and shared life in Israel-Palestine. In my PhD dissertation I explored the concepts of resistance in the political thought of Gilles Deleuze and Michel Foucault. I’ve Studied architecture at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, and graduated Masters degree at the Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas at Tel-Aviv University. My MA thesis focused on alternative spatial planning in the Unrecognized Bedouin villages in the Negev. I am teaching at the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning at the Technion and at the Department of Sociology, Political Science and Communication at The Open University. I’m also active and involved with different organizations, especially regarding issues of human rights and spatial planning.
