About

Coming October (2022), I will be joining New College at the University of Oxford as the Rank-Manning Junior Research Fellow in Social Sciences. I am currently at the final stages of my DPhil in Politics at Oxford University’s Department of Politics and International Relations, specialising in political theory. 

In my research I explore the justifications of real-life institutional designs, and their relationship with central issues in political philosophy such as democracy, equality, and freedom. My research interests include democratic theory, philosophy of competition, the normative limits of markets and legal philosophy. Additionally, I write on contemporary politics in Israel, focusing on national security and the rise of Israeli right-wing populism.  

Prior to my doctoral studies at Oxford, I completed an MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy at the London School of Economics (LSE), an LL.B at Tel-Aviv University, and a BA (Hons) at Tel-Aviv University.

In my academic research, I draw on ideas and observations from my previous hands-on experience in politics and civil service. Amongst other things, I worked as a campaign manager in the 2019 primaries for the Israeli Labour Party leadership; a lead negotiator for the Green Party during the establishment of the Democratic union Party; and a parliamentary researcher for MP Jack Dromey.

Public writing is a big passion of mine. I am a regular contributor to Haaretz newspaper as well as other popular publications in Israel and the UK. If you wish to follow my writing, you can find me on Twitter.
