I am an academic researcher of Public Administration and Public Policy. I am an assistant professor at at the school of Political Sciences at the University of Haifa.

My main research interest is in the interrelations between modern government bureaucratic organizations and their external audiences, and their implications for democracy. In addition, I am interested the use of AI algorithms in the public sector, and its implications on the dynamics of bureaucratic decision making.

I received my Ph.D. in Public Administration from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2019. Thereafter, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Public Administration at Leiden University, within the ERC-funded EURICA project (Reputation matters in the regulatory state: euricaerc.eu), led by Dr. Madalina Busuioc.

I am a methodological pluralist. I specialize in behavioral experiments, yet I also employ in my studies a variety of additional empirical approaches, including cross-sectional time-series analyses, quantitative case studies, and quantitative and qualitative analyses of interviews. I enjoy working with data in R.
