I’m a sociologist interested in South Korea's economic and cultural miracles. I wrote my dissertation on Start-up Nation vs. the Republic of Samsung and published several papers on the perception of Korean popular culture in Israel. At present I’m working on the Samsung vs. Apple smartphone patent wars and their impact on the international reputation of South Korea as a nation of innovation.
