Adoptions and corruption
Perceptions: a curve!
University of Virginia
My M.A. thesis explores the parabolic correlation between corruption perceptions indices scores and international adoption outflows to America from 1996-2008. The World Bank and Transparency International perceptions scores proxy for stateness (more rule of law, less bad governance) – and not for corruption in ethically meaningful terms. Then again, corruption itself is defined in terms of rule of law (the letter) and not in terms of ethics (the spirit).

Marines rule was by
to Guardia National
Tel Aviv University
My M.A. is about the U.S. Marine Corps attempts to establish a professional identity in the early 20th century. I argue that it drove the Marines to regulate their rule of Central American countries. This process culminated in the construction of a U.S. imperial system, which was based on development of local National Guard.
Market was state-planned,
So was World War II.
University of Haifa, Israel.
My MA thesis deals with the relation between the rise of market economy in the early 19th century and its relation with modern totalitarianism, as reflected in the writings of selected postwar thinkers.
Schedules are messy,
but schedulers are not dumb.
So, how do they work?
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Master’s Thesis Title: “The cognitive aspects of scheduling”
building blocks of cells’ structures,
I bend and buckle.
I work with actin, a protein that cells use for mechanical structures
just as an engineer would use steel to make a skyscraper or a car. In
my Master’s project, I took reconstituted filamentous actin bundles
and performed mechanical experiments on them using
myosin-functionalized beads in an optical tweezer setup in order to
investigate their material properties.
