After obtaining an LL.B from Tel Aviv University (1984) and working a few years as a lawyer, I did a BA in Physics and the Hebrew University (1991) and then a PhD in the Philosophy of Science (1997) with Itamar Pitowsky. After post doctoral fellowships in Cambridge (1997) and Oxford(1998) and then at the Hebrew University (1999) and Haifa (2000), I started a position as Lecturer at London School of Economics, department of philosophy (2000-2002). For personal reasons I returned to Israel, and spent a few years teaching in various colleges and at the Open University(2002-2010). During that period I continued my research, supported partially by a position of Senior Researcher at Haifa University and a grant from ISF. At 2010 I entered the Hebrew University’s Program in History and Philosophy of Science as Senior Lecturer, and since 2015 I am an Associate Professor. Since 2013 I am also director of the Edelstein research center for history and philosophy of science, and Academic Director of the Bar Hillel International Colloquium for the History and Philosophy of Science. In these positions I organized in December 2014 an international workshop in Jerusalem on “The Aims of Brain Research: Scientific and Philosophical Perspectives”, which brought together brain scientists and philosophers to discuss the future and prospects of the field.
