Education

I completed undergraduate studies in physics and doctoral studies in computational neuroscience at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. After my PhD I became a high-school teacher for several years and taught physics as well as courses in the philosophy of science, ethics in science and neural computation. I also established a research laboratory at the school, where I supervised many research projects in brain sciences and in robotics. After postdoctoral studies at the National Institute of Mental Health in the US I joined the Department of Cognitive and Brain Sciences at Ben-Gurion University.
