I am a postdoctoral associate at the Cognition & Language Processing Lab of Dr. Jared Novick, working jointly with Dr. Albert Kim (University of Colorado, Boulder). I study language processing, with an emphasis on the cognitive mechanisms that enable language comprehension. During my PhD my main focus was prediction processes, and in my current research I focus on the involvement of (domain-general) executive functions in language processing.
I did my M.Sc and PhD under the supervision of Dr. Aya Meltzer-Asscher, within the linguistics department and the Sagol School of Neuroscience at Tel Aviv University. I also did my B.Sc in biology and linguistics with an emphasis on neuroscience in Tel Aviv University.
