Neta Kligler-Vilenchik was born in Israel, and spent her childhood years in both Israel and Germany. Neta received her B.A. (Summa Cum Laude) from Tel Aviv University, studying communication and political science, and received her M.A. in Communication (Summa Cum Laude) from the University of Haifa in 2009.

Neta’s main research interest revolves around the relations between individual and collective memory as they relate to the media, as well as in memory’s role in shaping national identity. Her work takes an innovative approach to the study of collective memory, combining quantitative and qualitative methods to investigate the influence of collective memory in the media.

At Metamorphosis, Neta is part of a team developing a measure to examine people’s active construction of communication ecologies in pursuit of different goals.
