I'm a 3-year PhD student at Sagol School of Neuroscience, Tel Aviv University. I hold a B.Sc. in psychobiology (magna cum laude) from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Thereafter, I continued toward an MSc degree in neuroscience under the supervision of Prof. Ami Citri, where my research focused on finding specific neural ensembles in the reward circuitry which are involved in encoding cocaine experience, using behavioral and molecular techniques. In addition, I also investigated the cognitive and psychological aspects of addiction and reward. Following the research experience I gained, I concluded that my passion is neuroscientific human research and specifically decision-making. In my PhD, I examine the commonalities between perceptual and value-based decision making (on humans) using both behavioral and imaging (fMRI) techniques. I’m also very interested in social decision-making. Specifically, I would like to examine why we choose to get closer to specific individuals. Outside the lab, I enjoy theater and improvisation classes, strategy games with friends, yoga and running.
