Tali Kleiman

Very broadly I am interested in conflicts, incongruencies, and mismatches, and how our cognitive and motivational systems are affected by them on the one hand, and handle them on the other.

I have started exploring these issues in my PhD dissertation with Ran, where we looked into the possibility of goal conflicts occurring outside of conscious awareness.

I am now a postdoc at the Trope Lab at NYU where I try to pinpoint general (what a lovely linguistic incongruency) processes that may underlie both cognitive and self control.

I do, on occasion, emerge out of the lab to explore the fabulous NYC.
