I am a social scientist at the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Tel Aviv University, and the Department of Sociology with Focus on Quantitative Methods for Social Research, Goethe University Frankfurt. My research focuses on attitudes, immigration, and political communication using quantitative and computational methods as well as text-as-data and natural language processing.
Currently, I’m working as a postdoctoral fellow at Tel Aviv University funded by the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the Council for Higher Education while I am on leave from the Goethe University Frankfurt.
My work has been published in top general journals like European Sociological Review and Social Forces as well as in specialized journals such as Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, International Migration Review, and Ethnic and Racial Studies. My studies received, among others, the Janet A. Harkness Award of the World Association for Public Opinion Research & the American Association for Public Opinion Research and the German Preis der Fritz Thyssen Stiftung für sozialwissenschaftliche Aufsätze.
