I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Political Science at Tel Aviv University. My research interests include comparative political behavior, immigration policy, experimental design, and political economy. In my dissertation, I examine the conditions under which immigration policies cause or mitigate public backlash and political instability, with applicable implications for immigration policy design. Another field of research I study is the electoral consequences of economic shocks and financial crises. My research has appeared or is forthcoming in the academic journals International OrganizationPolitical Studies, and Regulation & Governance. I received my B.A. in Economics and M.A. in Political Science from Tel Aviv University.
