מידע כללי

Efrat Blumenfeld-Lieberthal is a Senior Lecturer at the David Azrieli School of Architecture at the Tel Aviv University. She received her B.Arch, MA and PhD at the Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning, at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. She worked as a post-doctorate researcher at the Center for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA), University College London and as a Porter Fellow at the Environmental Simulation Laboratory (ESLab), Tel Aviv University.

Her research interests are applying theories of complexity to urban environments; urban morphology; size distribution of entities in complex systems; complex networks in urban systems, and smart cities.

She is a member of the founding team of  City Center - TAU Research Center for Cities and Urbanism (https://urban.tau.ac.il/).
