I am a PhD Candidate in the Politics Department at Princeton University and a fellow in the Program for Quantitative and Analytical Political Science (QAPS). My dissertation explores the signals that states use to overcome information problems and avoid war. My broader interests include the political economy of conflict, coalition formation, and crime. Prior to coming to Princeton I received a BA in General History and an MA in Political Science from Tel Aviv University. I have also served as a staff officer in the Israel Defense Forces’ Planning Directorate and History Department.
