I completed my Ph.D thesis on the role of motivation in unconscious perception and intuitive decision-making at the Hebrew University with Prof. Ran Hassin and Prof. Yaacov Schul in 2013. I also studied with Prof. Ilan Yaniv the role of advice in decision-making. Currently, I'm a post-doc at the University of Maryland with Prof. Arie Kruglanski. I'm working on various projects related to arrogance, need for closure, motivation, cognitive energetics, goals and emotion regulation.
