David Adraee

David is a Masters student of Architecture and Town Planning at the Technion. His research explores the social, functional and historical significance of private open space (POS) in large housing estates and how it has changed over time. Using Yad Eliyahu neighborhood as a case study, David examines how these spaces are unique and fulfill a different function than their equivalent in the typical urban fabric buildings in central Tel Aviv. David hopes that recognition of this unique resource can make both a scholarly and pragmatic contribution to the current urban planning discourse.

Don Butler

Don completed his PhD studies in the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Calgary, Canada. He recently started his postdoctoral research at Haifa University in the field of micro-archaeology. His research pioneers a non–invasive Raman microscopy protocol for fingerprinting fish processing residues adhered to the surfaces of stone tools. Don hopes that the research will contribute to refining methodologies for recovering micro–archaeological evidence indicative of fishing industries among ancient hunter–gatherers in Israel, in turn providing evidence for some of the oldest fisheries in the world.

Gabriel Schwake

Gabriel is a Masters student at the Azrieli School of Architecture in Tel Aviv University. His research investigates urban renewal projects in the Tel Aviv – Jaffa area and their respond to random changes. Gabriel looks at these processes through the prism of LeFebvre’s philosophy of the citizens’ “right to the city” – their right to take part in the process of urbanization and thus create a city more suitable for its dwellers on the one hand, and more flexible on the other. By comparing the different methods of demolition and regeneration of earlier projects such as Manshiya and later projects such as Kerem Hatemanim, Gabriel hopes to make a clear statement about planning methods and practical implementation.

Jamie’s research holds real world implications not only for the Israeli – Palestinian peace process, but also for third-party intervention more broadly.

Dr. Paul Greenham

Paul completed his PhD studies at the University of Toronto. He is currently pursuing his postdoctoral research at the Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas at Tel Aviv University. In his research, Paul investigates Isaac Newton’s use of prophetic texts and interpretative guides—especially those drawn from Jewish and Arab traditions—in Newton’s writings on biblical prophecy recorded in the Yahuda manuscript collection. By knowing the degree to which Newton used texts and the manner of that use, we can determine his novel contributions to scholarship and to both textual and non-textual methods of reasoning in the sciences. Paul hopes his research will contribute to debates on the place of biblical hermeneutics in the development of scientific method and thus to play an important role in wider discussions of the relationship between science and religion.

Dr. Tsipora Mankovsky-Arnold

Boaz is a PhD student in the field of Psychology at Tel Aviv University. His research focuses on intergroup conflicts, socio-psychological barriers to peace-making, and the means to change conflict-supportive attitudes in order to end these conflicts as peacefully as possible. Boaz is working to develop psychological interventions which are based on the paradigm of ‘paradoxical thinking’, and thus contribute to the existing knowledge on attitude change and persuasion. He hopes this will lead to new interventions that can be applied in cases of intractable conflicts such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

One important challenge that Ori’s lab will address is the limitations imposed by light scattering on optical microscopy. Although microscopy is one of the most important tools in medical investigation and biomedical discovery, it is currently limited by light scattering to superficial investigations. Ori’s approach challenges the governing paradigms on scattered light. In the coming years, his lab will focus on developing a new kind of microscope, which can peer deeper inside visually opaque samples, by combining light and sound. His multidisciplinary approach brings together advanced optical microscopy and light control techniques, with ultrasound-mediated imaging, and carries great potential for impact on biomedical investigation.

Modernism. His research on the architecture of youth villages built in the period surrounding the establishment of the State of Israel aims to provide an essential reading of the local architectural historiography, and eventually discuss repressed phenomena in local architectural discourse. Ziv plans to continue his research on these issues, so significant to local Israeli architecture, while playing an active role in the education of the next generations of architecture students.

Jonathan Letzter

Jonathan Letzter is a Masters student at the Azrieli School of Architecture at Tel Aviv University. In his research he discusses the question of additions to historic buildings, and the fact that despite the considerable differences between the building and the new addition, both parts emerge as a single functioning entity. Jonathan looks at the various means of expression in the connection between the historic building and the new addition, in a way that allows preservation of historic, cultural and social values. He hopes to be able to apply his conclusions to practical design, testing it in an existing urban texture, thus enabling urban renewal and strengthening of historic centers of cities.

Pinaki Mondal

Pinaki Mondal completed his PhD at the University of Toronto in Mathematics. He is currently doing postdoctoral research at the Weizmann Institute of Science, using a technique known as ‘compactification’. Painters discovered the notion of perspective, which hints at a notion of infinity (e.g. parallel railway tracks meet at a point at infinity). The idea of points at infinity was formalized in mathematics under the terminology ‘compactification’ and underlies our understanding of many practical problems. Finding solutions to two equations in two unknowns becomes easier if the corresponding curves “behave well” near infinity. Pinaki will be using compactification techniques to study the behaviour of polynomial equations and systems of differential equations with polynomial coefficients.

Meera Nair

Meera Nair holds a PhD in Communications from Simon Fraser University, Canada. She is currently engaging in postdoctoral research at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the field of communication guided by the writings of Harold Adams Innis (1894-1952). Meera’s interests lie in the similarities that both Canada and Israel have in terms of development of copyright. She finds Israel’s moderate approach to copyright intriguing, set as it is against a global trend which increasingly stipulates that copyright is an instrument of absolute control. Israel’s approach is a better model for the world to follow, for it recognizes that creativity is cumulative and necessarily draws from existing intellectual effort. However, to fully capitalize on this domestic opportunity – to reach the heights of intellectual effort spanning cutting-edge research and the fine arts – a broader understanding of Israel’s approach is key.  Meera seeks to examine and participate within Israel’s current efforts to foster the awareness of fair use, a legitimate exception to copyright, which allows creativity and innovation to thrive.

Meytal Nasie

Meytal Nasie is a PhD student in the field of Education at Tel Aviv University. Her research focuses on inter-group conflict resolutions in a broader context of inter-group relations. Using the Israeli- Palestinian conflict as a primary case study, Meytal explores the impact of respect and disrespect on conflict escalation, moderation, and reconciliation. Within this context, her empirical research, which is conducted among Israelis and Palestinians, enables the simultaneous examination of the perspectives of both sides of the conflict. Meytal’s study emphasizes the importance of education for respect for the other in relationships in general and in conflicts in particular.
