Hello! My name is Lotem Bassan-Nygate, I'm a postdoctoral research associate at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at Princeton University. I defended my dissertation in summer of 2023 at the Political Science department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, while spending the past year as a predoctoral research fellow at Harvard Kennedy School's Middle East Initiative.
My research lies at the intersection of international relations, political psychology, and experimental methods. In my book project, I develop a multi-audience theory of shaming that sheds light on the motives, outcomes, and unintended consequences of foreign criticism. My broader research agenda can be grouped into three topics: domestic politics of international relations, political behavior, and experimental research methods.
My work has appeared in several journals including Comparative Political Studies and Journal of Experimental Political Science.
I hold a B.A. (cum laude) and a M.A. in International Relations from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.
