Welcome to my website! I’m a postdoctoral fellow in the Munk School of Global Affairs and the Department of Political Science, University of Toronto. My main research interests are political behavior, public opinion, comparative politics and electoral politics. I completed my PhD in the Department of Political Science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2017. My doctoral dissertation focused on formative experiences and generational differences in political attitudes. In addition, I have been part of a comparative research project, led by Professor Orit Kader, which examines how electoral districts affect representation and party systems, focusing on district magnitude as the main explanatory factor. My current research deals with party leaders’ evaluation and turnout as well as governmental blame attribution and its electoral consequences.
