About me

I am a post-doctoral researcher at University of Massachusetts, Amherst, working with Brian Dillon, as a Fulbright scholar.

In my research, I investigate the processing of filler-gap dependencies, agreement, and anaphora, using use reading times, acceptability judgments, and sentence completion tasks. I general, am interested in:

  • How comprehenders balance different types of information (e.g. frequency, uncertainty, processing costs, grammatical and discursive constraints)?
  • How error-prone is our language comprehension system and why?

I completed my PhD at the Linguistics Department of Tel-Aviv University under the supervision of Aya Meltzer-Asscher, as an Ariane de Rothschild fellow. Before that, I was a student of the Adi Lautman Interdisciplinary Program for Outstanding Students, and completed a M.Sc. in the Sagol School of Neuroscience in Tel-Aviv University.

Here is my CV, and for non Hebrew speakers – this is how I pronounce my name.
