Overview

I joined the University of Manchester as Research Fellow in the Sustainable Consumption Institute and Reader in Sociology in September 2016. My research addresses scholarship conducted at the crossroads of consumption, culture, environment, and inequality, with a strong emphasis on cross-national and cross-time comparisons. 

Recently I served for two terms as member of the executive committee and treasurer of the European Sociological Association; I was vice-president of the Israel Sociological Society; I co-founded a section on environment and society within the Israeli Sociological Society and I was co-coordinator of the Israel branch of the Sustainable Consumption Research and Action Initiative (SCORAI). In the past few years I was invited as visiting professor in several universities, including the Department of Economic Sociology in Turku, where I was also appointed adjunct professor; Kyung-Hee University in Seoul; Science Po in Paris; ENSAE in Paris; University of Innsbruck and others. I was recently appointed as co-editor-in-chief of Poetics: Journal of Empirical Research on Culture, the Media, and the Arts
