I am a comparative sociologist, trained in qualitative methods, with a background in both sociological and political science theory.
My current research interests are:
- Science Technology and Society (STS)
- Surveillance Studies
- Artificial Intelligence Studies
- Social Networks
- Labor Studies
- Work and Technology
- Trade Unions
- Methodological and Philosophy of Science issues
- Sociology of Education
- Political Economy
I share my research findings and participate in academic debates through presentations I give and workshops I participate in (see Talks section), and am currently a member of both the Israeli 'Privacy and the Capitalism of Information' forum, and the international 'Trust and Transparency in an Age of Surveillance' forum. I also make a point of sharing my research findings and conclusions with non-academic organizations and forums as part of 'public sociology'.
I serve as a reviewer of academic works both in official and unofficial capacities, and am always happy to read and comment on new work in my fields. For some additional facts about me click here.
