I am pursuing an MA thesis in Human-Computer Interaction. My thesis research focuses on humor in HCI/HRI, with a further spotlight on social interaction.
 

I am a firm believer that humor is a key element in communication and interaction and can be leveraged to every field or sector.  
 

A professional journalist, editor and speaker for over two decades, I now apply my communication skills to the Human Computer Interaction and Human-Centered Computing arenas. 

 

I crossed over to a new career to follow my passion for research and the impact it can have.
 

I am an effective communicator with great presentation and interviewing skills; I thrive on searching for the essence in complex ideas; and get a kick out of conducting qualitative and quantitative research.
 

I am a big fan of ongoing learning and collaboration projects and am always happy to do both.

At times, I wear more than one hat. You can also find me: 

  • mentoring new journalism students at Reichman University

  • assistant teaching a course on ethics and technology at Reichman University

  • giving talks on a variety of topics including innovation, failure, the impact of technologies on our lives, how to tell a story, and everything in between
     

Random fact:
I trained as a therapeutic-educational clown,
and always try to employ humor theory conventions and ideas to better interaction and communication everywhere.
