David Levi-Faur is associate professor at the School of Public Policy and the Department of Political Science, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is also a founding editor of Regulation & Governance, a Willey-Blackwell's journal, that aims to serve as a leading platform for the study of regulation and governance in the social sciences. He held research and teaching positions at the University of Haifa, the University of Oxford, the Australian National University and the University of Manchester. He held visiting positions in the London School of Economics, the University of Amsterdam, University of Utrecht and University of California (Berkeley). He currently works on a book manuscript Regulating Capitalism: Governance and the Global Spread of Regulatory Agencies," to be published by Princeton University Press. His recent work includes special issues of the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences (The Global Diffusion of Regulatory Capitalism, co-edited with Jacint Jordana) and Governance (Varieties of Regulatory Capitalism).

See also shortbio in Hebrew from Ynet and/or Carolin Aronis interview with me published in the faculty of the Social Sciences Newsletter on the occasion of the end of my role as the Social Sciences Faculty's Phd Program. The interview is in Hebrew. If you have spare time and interest you may also want to see the nice book that the PhD students prepared for that occasion. I guess, much of initiative came from my partner to this project, Avital Madson
