I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Tel Aviv University's School of Political Science, Government, and International Affairs, where I study elite political behaviour.
My research focuses on executive decision making - I look at whether and how people who run for office differ from non-politicians when they solve problems and reason about the policy choices they have to make. I do this by conducting behavioural experiments with incumbent politicians as participants, across different contexts and countries.
My broader substantive interests are comparative public policy, elections and campaigns, and legislative behaviour. Methodologically, I am interested in survey and field experiments, survey design, and large-scale data analysis. I am also interested in methods for eliciting spontaneous evaluations based on visual cues, and in Bayesian models of belief formation.
In the past, I worked as a Senior Researcher for Delphia, as a Research Manager at the Analyst Institute during the 2016 US election, and in various consulting and polling advisory roles in other election campaigns. See my CV here.
