    My research focuses mainly on otherness in the Israeli society and on meeting points between Israelis and Palestinians. Currently I finished a book manuscript titled, Inheriting an empire? UN agencies in the Israeli Palestinian conflict.

    I also wrote about interreligious marriages between Jewish women and Palestinian men in Israel (under review), Palestinian men who pass as Jews and Jews who pass as Palestinians (Sociology, revise and resubmit).

    Previously I researched Palestinian teachers in Jewish schools who had to pass as `good Arabs` in order to hold a job and about Jewish women who volunteered to act as human shield to Palestinian insurgents.

    I also research the military. I researched masculinity and violence in the Israeli military and Dutch NATO peacekeepers in Bosnia and Kosovo.
