I am a professor of Operations Research at The Jerusalem School of Business Administration at Hebrew University where I am head of the Department of Operations Research and Operations Management. Just for fun, I am also the academic director of the International MBA program and the Recanati Research Centre here at the school.

My research interests include game engineering (see special issue on the topic in Transportation Research Part B, 2010) and productivity modeling. Combining optimization with micro-economic concepts, cost-benefit assessments, geographical spatial analyses, data envelopment analysis and stochastic directional distance functions to the field of transport has led to creative new ways of understanding and developing transport markets. I have been fortunate to work with many talented people in the fields of economics, industrial and civil engineering, business, mathematics, geography, public policy and even physics, without which none of this would have been possible.

Some of the European Union funded consortia in which I have participated include (1) modeling the potential introduction of competition in the air traffic management market through auctioning (COMPAIR); (2) modeling transport accessibility requirements using big data (BigData4ATM); (3) modeling the potential impact of new technologies for multiple stakeholders (ACCHANGE); (4) developing modeling approaches for estimating the impact of new infrastructure projects (FUNDING) and (5) estimating the impact of marginal cost pricing in transport-integrated conceptual models (MC-ICAM). Participation in a European COST network on the topic of Air Transport and Regional Development (ATARD) has led to many new research directions and a series of doctoral summer schools.
