Michael Freedman

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Hebrew University, with support from the Azrieli foundation and the Leonard Davis Institute. I have a PhD in political science, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2019). I will be joining the University of Haifa as an assistant professor (lecturer) in political science in October 2020.

I study religion and conflict in Israel and the Muslim world. My work combines big data approaches with experiments and in-depth interviews. My research has been published in multiple outlets including the American Sociological Review and the Journal of Conflict Resolution.
