 I am a senior lecturer in the Department of Communication at the University of Haifa, Israel. I research how organizations and individuals use media technologies and their attendant rhetoric to promise and provide solutions for social problems. I also study mediated representations and understandings of economic life. I teach courses on the culture industries, media institutions, economic communication and content analysis methods.
