I am an assistant professor (lecturer) at the Department of Political Science and the Joint Program in Politics, Philosophy and Economics (PPE) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My research interests lie at the intersection of political behavior, political  sociology and political economy. I bring an array of methods to this research, including survey analysis, field experiments and text analysis. The geographic scope of my research to date covers member states of the European Union, Israel, and the United States. My research has been published, among other places, in the American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, Social Forces, and the Journal of Empirical Legal Studies. You can read more about my research in the Economist, the American Prospect, the Washington Post, the BBCHaAretz and Ynet.

I studied politics, philosophy and economics and received my BA from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, in 2009. In 2016 I received my PhD from Harvard, where I was affiliated with the Center for European Studiesthe Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and the Inequality and Social Policy Program at the Kennedy School. During 2017-2018, I was a fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at Princeton University.
