I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Political Science, University of Haifa. My first stream of research engages with the literature on democratic backsliding; it explores the erosion of democratic norms and institutions; and it challenges the premises of democratic participation. My second stream of research focuses on how democratic health shapes the physiological and psychological well-being of the public, and its effects on citizens’ attitude formation, electoral preferences, and participation. My research was published in leading political science, communication and medical journals, and featured in various media outlets including the New York Times, the Huffington Post, the Jerusalem Post, and Haaretz. I have been a visiting professor at Stanford University and Cornell University.
