I am a Senior Lecturer in the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy, and Strategy at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya, Israel. My work focuses on the processes underpinning right-wing extremism and political violence, with a particular emphasis on Israel. Using quantitative methods along with large-N analysis, I aim to elucidate the socio-political motivations behind political extremism and the conditions under which political extremism poses threats to democracies. I also examine ways in which the effects of these processes might be moderated in order to encourage a less violent political dynamic.
