She has been leading on the Climate Change Laws of the World project since 2013, and joined the Transition Pathway Initiative as its project manager in 2018. Her research and policy work have focused on issues of climate legislation and governance.

Her research explored patterns of global diffusion of climate change policies, and the contribution of global networks to advancement of policies. She also has an MA (cum laude) in Energy Policy and Management from the University of Haifa, an LLB in Law and an MBA (specialising in finance) from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Previously, Michal worked at the Samuel Neaman Institute for National Policy Research, an environmental think tank in Israel, where, among others, she served on the professional advisory board for Israel’s national greenhouse gas mitigation plan, and was involved in drafting of environmental laws and policies. Prior to that, Michal headed competitive intelligence projects for multinational companies in the private sector.
