I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Labor Studies at Tel Aviv University. My research is in the areas of inequality, education, labor markets and organizations. My recent studies explore shifts in the ecology of higher education--including the massive expansion of for-profit colleges and other open admission colleges--and assess their impact on students’ educational and labor market outcomes. In other projects, I examine the sources and implications of the underrepresentation of women and minorities in STEM fields, and how college application behavior impacts students outcome. My work appeared in several peer-reviewed journals, including Demography, Social Forces, Sociology of Education, Social Problems, Social Science Research, and Sociological Science. You can read more about my ongoing projects here, and view my published work here.
I received my PhD in Sociology from Cornell University in 2016 (you can read about my dissertation project here). Prior to joining the Social Science Faculty at Tel Aviv University, I was a Research Scientist on the Demography and Survey Science Team at Facebook, Inc. and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for the Study of Inequality at Cornell University. During the summer of 2019, I was a visiting scholar at the Center for the Study of Inequality at Cornell University.
In addition to my academic work, I advice to companies and non-profit organizations on how to measure outcomes of interest effectively and accurately, and design rigorous, robust and scientific strategies for reducing measurement errors and biases in observational data.
