I am a visiting assistant professor 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 2017.
I research illiberalism, nationalism, populism, international security, democratization and de-democratization, and political narratives with a regional focus on Europe and Israel.
I currently teach courses on European politics, nationalism, social movements and political protest, and Mediterranean politics. 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 and Vox.
