I am interested in many things, and as so my academic career began with the question of where to start. Drawn to the fields of history, computers and psychology, I found myself with a double B.Sc. in computer science and Middle Eastern history, followed by an M.A. in cognitive psychology, all from Tel Aviv University. Like my interests, my research fields are diverse – started with attention, continued with music perception, and then onto cognitive biases in emotional processing. My current research investigates the mechanisms through which approach and avoidance influence emotional evaluations.
