I am a Faculty Fellow at NYU's Center for European and Mediterranean Studies and a fellow at the Saltzman Institute for War and Peace at Columbia University. I received my Ph.D. in political science from Columbia University in October 2017. I earned an M.A. from Columbia, an M.Sc and a B.Sc from Tel Aviv University.
I research populism, nationalism, international security, democratization and de-democratization, and social and ethnic cleavages with a regional focus on Eastern Europe and Israel.
I currently teach courses on European politics, nationalism, social movements and political protest, and nationalism. Among the courses I previously taught are Introduction to Comparative Politics Introduction to International Relations; and Scope and Methods in Political Science.
In addition to my scholarship, I participate in policy debates in my blog, as well as other publications such as Duck of Minerva, the LSE USA blog, and Newsweek. In addition my work has been featured in the New York Times.
