I am a cultural anthropologist researching the ways people navigate the ethical dilemmas they encounter during their everyday lives and their encounters with the state. I am interested in liberalism and its discontents.
I am originally from New Paltz, New York. I did my Ph.D. in Anthropology at Princeton University (2011). I joined the faculty of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Tel Aviv University in the fall of 2013. I do my research in Israel and Palestine, using ethnographic methods.
