    I received my PhD from Tel-Aviv University in 2011. Before coming to Bar-Ilan University I was a postdoctoral research associate at the Center for Research on Inequalities and the Life Course (CIQLE) at Yale University (2012-2014), and I also had held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Sociology at the University of Haifa (2010-2011). My main areas of interest include Social Stratification, the Sociology of Education, Rational Choice in Education, and Research Methods.

    תחומי מחקר

    As a sociologist with interest in stratification, I mainly focus my research projects on the question who gets ahead and who falls behind. My research interests are in sociological questions of stratification and inequality in education and the labor market focusing on gender, class, race, and sibship structure. My research so far has focused on the educational system with data from Israel and the US.
