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 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, Summa cum laude) and LLB in Law (1999, Magna cum laude) both from Tel-Aviv University.
I am spending the 2019-2020 academic year as a residence fellow at Stanford’s Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS)
