After serving for three years as an intelligence operative in the Israeli army, I completed a BA (summa cum laude) in Western History and East Asian Studies at Tel Aviv University. Afterwards, I have studied for two years (2007-9) as a research student in Tokyo University under a Japanese state scholarship. Currently, I am a PhD Student at Harvard University, working on comparative history of military revolts and political assassinations in Japan, Germany and elsewhere. Other fields of interest are messianism and revolutionary violence, illegal military orders, military disobedience, atrocities in wartime and the formation of revolutionary networks.
I have also served as a teaching fellow and section leader for Prof. Niall Ferguson and Prof. Andrew Gordon, and as an external fellow in the International History Institute, Boston University, the Davis Center for Russian and Euroasian Studies, Harvard University, and as a research fellow in the Japan Foundation, Tokyo.
In July 2009, following the 65 anniversary of the assassination attempt on Hitler, I have published my first book, Valkyrie - German Resistance to Hitler in Hebrew (Yedioth Ahronot Press), followed by more than ten academic articles, in-house and peer-reviewed. In addition, I own a bi-lingual blog, the owl, on history, contemporary politics and other subjects. Most of my posts are in Hebrew, but several were translated to English.
