I am an Israel Institute Teaching Fellow and a Scholar in Residence in the Department of Political Science at the University of Houston. 

My Ph.D. dissertation from Indiana University explored the early relationship between the State of Israel and Southern Africa and different South African radical interpretations of Zionism. 

I have published academic as well as policy-related works about Africa-Israel relations in diverse venues.

I have an MA in History from Bar Ilan University and a BA in Middle Eastern History and Philosophy from the University of Haifa.
