Short Biography

I completed my PhD at the Swiss Center for Conflict Research, Management and Resolution, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Previously a Visiting Israel Professor at the University of Kansas, I later received the Lady Davis post-doctoral fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Research Interests

My studies deal with psychological and social aspects of political conflicts and their resolution, while focusing on the following areas of research and their integration:

  • Leadership – The roles of political leaders in conflict resolution.
  • Peace Processes – Characteristics and dynamics of peace processes following intractable conflicts.
  • Gender – Gender differences and their influence on support for peace.
  • Emotions – Influences of different emotions, such as fear, empathy and hope on conflicts and their resolution.
  • Diasporas – How can diaspora communities assist in resolving their homeland conflict?
