  • Currently, I am a Senior Lecturer in the Psychology and Education Departments in Tel-Hai College. Head of the Physiology & Behavior laboratory  in the Psychology department. In paralel, I am a research associate in the developmental Psychopatological lab. in the Department of Psychology at the University of Haifa where I did my Post-Doc internship. During this period I have been trained in humans clinical research, in both young (8-17YD) and adult (18+YD) subjects, using physiological and neural methods. My research mainly focuses on fear learning, attention and the development of pathological anxiety. My previous research experience focused on the development of a novel approach to animal models of psychopathologies. Specifically, my Ph.D. involved individual behavioural profiling and the establishment of an in vivo electrophysiological systems approach to examine activity and plasticity in emotional networks in the rodent brain.
