Role: the Professional Advisory Committee
I served as a researcher in the Institute of Soils, water and Environmental Sciences of the Agricultural Research Organization, Volcani Center until 2007 specializing in the study of the fate of pollutants in soils and water bodies and of procedures to minimize the pollutants' adverse effect on the environment. Between 1994 and 1999 I served as the Chief Scientist of the Ministry of the Environment and for over two years (2005-2007) as the deputy director in charge of scientific affairs, of the Agricultural Research Organization. Since 2007 I am active as an emeritus scientist at the Volcani Center, Institute of Soils, Water and Environmental Sciences. I chaired or was a member of a number of important committees that dealt with environmental issues, for example I chaired the joint government-private sector committee that determined the methodology, later adopted by the Israeli government, for formulating environmentally related laws and regulation.
