I am an Associate Professor at the political science department at the University of Pennsylvania.

My research is in applied political economy, with substantive focus on political accountability, political participation, migration and conflict processes, and a regional focus on sub-Saharan Africa and Israel-Palestine. I am a board member of the Evidence in Governance and Politics (EGAP) network, and faculty affiliate of Stanford’s Immigration Policy Lab (IPL),  Penn’s Center for the Study of Ethnicity, Race, and Immigration (CSERI) and Penn’s Identity & Conflict (PIC) Lab. My work has appeared in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Political Science Review, American Journal of Political Science, International Organization and Journal of Politics, among other journals. I hold a PhD in political science from Columbia University (2011, with distinction) as well as MA in Political Philosophy (2004) and LLB in Law (199) both from Tel-Aviv University.
