I received my PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of Toronto in 2010 and my MA, from the same department, in 2005. I have a BSc in Biology from Tel-Aviv University (1998) and a BMus in performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto (2003).
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a postdoctoral fellow in Iain Couzin’s lab in the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology Department at Princeton University (2010-2014).
My research combines empirical studies of collective behavior in fish, birds, and rats with theoretical work on the mechanisms of collective decision-making. I am particularly interested in how occurring in a group shapes different types of cognition, such as learning or searching.
