Director
Bucerius Institute for Research of Contemporary German History and Society

Currently I am the director of the Bucerius Institute for Research of Contemporary German History and Society at the University of Haifa. While the main research emphasis during previous academic years dealt with questions of identity formation, migration, integration, citizenship, and multiculturalism, the Institute currently focuses on the study of the intersection of modern contemporary German history, modern Jewish history, and the history of science and scholarship.
