About me

Curriculum Vitae



I am an associate professor  in the departments of political science and international relations, the director of the Leonard Davis Institute for International Relations, and the associate dean for research of the faculty of social science at the University of Jerusalem . My research examines the emergence, unfolding and regulation of anti-regime mobilization, protest behavior, ethnic polarization, and civil wars. I also have significant interest in computational modeling and geographic information systems. I teach both graduate and undergraduate classes on ethnic mobilization, civil wars, interstate conflicts: violence and regulation, introduction to political science, honors workshop, social movements, and research methods.
