I’m a cognitive scientist, graduated in experimental psychology at the Bar-Ilan University. I did my PhD in Tel-Aviv University (2002), specialized in the study of selective attention and comparative judgments of multidimensional stimuli. Then, I obtained a three-years post-doctoral research position in Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.
My current research interest focuses on different aspects of Numerical cognition, Embodied cognition, and the link between cultural habits and spatial cognition.
Among others, I’m currently collaborate with:
Prof. Martin Fischer (University of Potsdam, Germany)
Dr. Koleen McCrink (Barnard College, Colombia University)
Dr Tobias Loetscher (University of South Australia, Australia)
Dr. Thomas Faulkenberry (Tarleton University, USA)
Dr. Silke göbel (University of York, UK)
