I am an Associate Professor at The Paul Baerwald School of Social Work and Social Welfare at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I received my PhD at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Psychology Department at the Graduate Center, the City University of New York.

I was a Senior Lecture in Counseling and Human Development Department at the University of Haifa and was the head of the Educational Counseling program. My research focuses on values and social behavior among adolescents, the relations between values trajectories and youth adjustment and the psychological effect of immigration especially on ethnic identity.
