More Info


I received my BA in International Relations and MA in Political Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My research interests include political parties, comparative institutions, causality and epistemology in historical research, and European politics. My dissertation develops and tests a theory of endogenous cleavage formation where the state shapes how cleavages emerge and persist. My current collaborative research projects examine the change to social democratic parties since the 1950s and the causes for partisan disproportionality in PR systems.
