I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Computational Psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine in Mount Sinai, New York.
In my work, I use tools from computational psychiatry to study effects of belief and decision making, both with neuroimaging and methods of invasive brain recordings. I am similarly passionate about employing
narrative-based naturalistic stimuli to study brain responses to traumatic memories and computation of threat.

I hold a BSc in life sciences from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. I received my MSc and PhD from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, where I studied human olfaction under the supervision of Prof. Noam Sobel.
