Dvora is the lead assessment scientist for Atlantic sea scallops, and secondary for spiny dogfish. She is a member of Automated Image Analysis Strategic Initiative Committee, ICES Stock Assessment Methods Working Group, and the NEFMC Sea Scallop PDT. 

Before joining the NEFSC in 1999, Dvora was on the Mathematics faculty of two liberal arts colleges, and did research in Mathematical Ecology at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Tel Aviv University. At NEFSC, she, together with colleagues, has developed length-based and spatial stock assessment methods that are in particular applicable to the sea scallop fishery. The spatial SAMS model that she began developing soon after arriving at NEFSC is the primary forecasting tool used by the New England Fishery Management Council to aid in management of sea scallops. More recently, she and her colleagues have been developing tools to analyze data from the HabCam towed camera survey, including geostatistical modeling and automated image analysis.
