Born and raised in Israel, I received my BA in Poetics and Comparative Literature in 2001, and a Certificate in Copyediting in 2002 at Tel-Aviv University. I earned an MST in Jewish Studies from Oxford University in 2008, and a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at the University of Washington, Seattle, in summer 2012.
My fields of interest include Hebrew, Yiddish, and Jewish-American literature, as well as the instruction of Hebrew as a second language. I teach all levels of modern Hebrew language, as well as courses in English on Hebrew and Jewish literature.
I have taught at the University of Washington (2004-11) and Portland State University (2011-12). From 2012 to 2016 I was the Silbermann Family Visiting Assistant Professor of Modern Hebrew at Bucknell University, and as of Fall 2016, I am the Silbermann Family Professor in Modern Hebrew Language and Literature at the rank of an Assistant Professor.
