Hillel Aviezer

Hillel Aviezer graduated the clinical neuropsychology program at HU and his PhD thesis was carried out under the joint supervision of Ran Hassin and Shlomo Bentin. His research explores the influence of emotional body context on facial expression perception using a wide range of methodologies and testing rare neuropsychological patient populations. After being scotch-taped to his chair by his own lab members, Aviezer left the holy land with his wife and multiple offspring to start a joint postdoc with Alex Todorov in Princeton and Yaacov Trope in NYU. After completing his postdoc, he returned to the Hebrew University and joined the faculty at the psychology department. Still suffering from caffeine abuse, Aviezer rarely sleeps but when he does doze off, he dreams of tenure and an overweight BMI.
