Overview

I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Behavioral Science & Management program at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, supervised by Dr. Shahar Ayal, Prof. Eran Halperin and Prof. Ido Erev. I received my B.A. in Psychology and Philosophy as well as my M.A. in Cognitive Psychology from Tel Aviv University.

Research

My main interests are the role of sadness (feeling it and communicating it) in intergroup conflicts, and revenge in intergroup conflicts
