I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Middle Eastern & African History at Tel Aviv University. My research is at the juncture of three fields of historical research: the early modern Ottoman Empire; Islamic medicine, health and illness; and Muslim environmental history. My final goal is to unravel social and cultural realities in the Turkish and Arabic speaking worlds.
In my various administrative duties, I try to solve problems within the academic and administrative requirements and allow my colleagues and students make the most out of their expereince at TAU.
I am also a very proud mother of two princesses, Ella and Daphna. I share with them and with my husband my love of kebap meat, Turkish music, and lots and lots of books.
