JSP PH.D. CANDIDATE

Punishment, politics, and democracy

Greetings!
I'm a Jurisprudence and Social Policy Ph.D. candidate at UC Berkeley.

My academic work is about understanding how people think about justice in a democracy. In the process, I'm busting old myths about public opinion and punishment.

I ask, mainly, how do people form preferences for criminal justice policy and how to solve the puzzle of maintaining a responsive, yet not punitive, representative democracy?

BIO

LL.B, LL.M, Ph.D. (expected, 2024)

Curiosity about justice as a vocation brought me to law school, where I focused on studying jurisprudence and socio-legal theory. After a short learning period with inspiring lawyers of the Israeli National Public Defense department, I came to Berkeley to pursue higher education and an immersive research environment.
Here I researched discretionary parole, emerging technologies in the criminal justice system, and the politics of criminal justice.
