She is an expert in Food Science and Food Preparation with an emphasis on improving the nutritional and therapeutic value of foods.

Projects include planning, executing and evaluating interventions to promote better eating habits in Israeli school children (kindergarten, elementary and high school) along with motivating parents to provide healthier foods at home.

A recent partnership with The School of Social Work and Ashalim/Joint Israel, has led to the development of a program that uses nutrition education as a platform to improve family functioning in underprivileged communities.
