Michael Freedman

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Hebrew University, with support from the Azrieli foundation (International Postdoctoral Fellowship) and the Leonard Davis Institute. I have a PhD in political science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (defended June 2019). 

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.
