I am a PhD student in the Department of Geography and at the Advanced School of Environmental Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem

My research -"Crowdsourcing as a tool for exploring recreational and hiking activity in nature in Israel" focuses on the combination of outdoor recreation and volunteered geographical information-VGI

The formal data bases have limitations in understanding recreational activities patterns in open spaces, and in recent years, with Crowdsourcing increasing, these limitations can be overcome by using such databases.

In my research I use various analytical tools, including spatial analysis in GIS and temporal analysis of the databases.

I am a PhD student at The Department of Geography at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

My thesis, “Urban Planning in the Era of Mobility”, proposes a new term for the people who visit a city: temporary citizens. This group is comprised of tourists, international businesspeople including digital nomads, and students. I propose to consider them as an integral part of the city’s users as citizens, and to take them into account in town planning. I believe that this can reduce the conflicts we now have between locals and visitors.
