My name is Doris, I live in Maghar, Galil, in the northern part of Israel. I am married and have one son.
I hold a B.Sc. in Molecular Biochemistry and B.Sc.Ed. in Chemistry and Environmental Science from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.
I work at the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel in training teachers to combine values of environmental sustainability in their teaching, and to implement a sustainable lifestyle in their schools.
In 2013 I started my M.Sc. in Science Education at the Technion, in the Department of Education in Science & Technology.
During my courses, I was exposed to the field of science communication and it charmed me by its content and its connection to real life and education. I was especially drawn to the influence of social networks on scientific public discourse.
At the end of 2014, I began my Master thesis program under the supervision of Assistant Professor Ayelet Baram-Tsabari.
My research topic is:
The characteristics of an authentic scientific discourse in social networks: The case of fluoridation of drinking water.
