Since 1994 he is a faculty member at Civil and Environmental Engineering Faculty (Technion, Israel) teaching and studying environmental microbiology (main subject-bacteriophages as viral pollution indicators). He is a member in many microbiological and water societies such as ASM, ISM, IWA and ISEI, board member in several scientific journals and reviewer. He published over 89 scientific papers, 10 book chapters, has 7 patents and recently published the book "Environmental aspects of zoonotic diseases" (IWA Press, 2012), co-authored with his colleague Dr. Uta Cheruti.
