I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Human and Biodiversity Research Lab at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. I did my PhD at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, France.

My main areas of expertise are conservation psychology, urban ecology, conservation planning, invasion biology.
