My research interests are: sensory representations in literature; musical ekphrasis; Literary theory; Cognitive poetics; Modern Hebrew literature; aesthetics.
My PhD thesis was about sensory representations and their significance in the prose of Hebrew writer Shulamith Hareven. Recently I co-authored an article on representations of music in fiction with musicologist Prof. Naphtali Wagner of the Hebrew University.
