As of September 1st, 2011, I am an Assistant Professor in the Communication Department at UMass Amherst.
My papers are available to download at Academia.edu, so I will not post any more of them here.
I studied Israeli radio phone-ins, and now I expand to study American Political Radio Talk, including the "notorious" Rush Limbaugh, and also Interested in TV (Jon Stewart) and other arena for public participation, such as internet comments and various phone-ins.
Since 1996, I've been studying the intersection of interaction, culture, and the media. My interests lie both in interactions in the media and in mundane interactions, which I studied during my time at the Hebrew University, UCLA, and throughout my dissertation in the University of Haifa. In my graduate studies, I was fortunate enough to work with leading researchers in various streams of Language and Social Interaction research - also known as Discourse Studies: Pragmatics, Socio-Linguistics, Conversation Analysis, Linguistics, and Ethnography of Communication.
