Before joining JHU, I was a postdoctoral researcher in LSCP and IJN in the Cognitive Science Department at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, where I worked with Emmanuel Dupoux and Benjamin Spector.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Linguistics in September 2015 from New York University, under the supervision of Alec Marantz. During my Ph.D., I also collaborated with Gillian Gallagher, Maria Gouskova and Liina Pylkkänen at NYU, as well as with Florian Jaeger at the University of Rochester.
Before that, I obtained a B.Sc. in Mathematics and Linguistics and an M.A. in Linguistics (with Mira Ariel), both from Tel Aviv University, and worked as a data scientist and software engineer in various companies, the last of which was IBM.
