Lili Friedler Shulman
PhD Student, MScURP | Research Assistant
Lili holds a master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology and a B.A. in Business and Management and Geography from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. In her master’s thesis, she explored the Israeli public’s preparedness for earthquakes — investigating risk perception and how it affects the decision-making process with respect to planning.
In 2013-2014 Lili pursued a fellowship in the Milken Fellows program, whose key objective is to provide promising young individuals the opportunity to work on difficult government policy issues. Prior to this program, Lili spent two years as a project manager and consultant at an environmental and urban planning management consultancy, where she managed various projects, including the National Outline Plan for Transportation.
Lili’s research interests are in the relationship between the built environment and people. Lili will focus on the relationship between housing preferences and actual supply. She is also interested in small housing in Canada and Israel. In her research she intends to examine correlations between different housing characteristics and built environment aspects and physical activity patterns, use of public space, environmental awareness.
