I am a postdoc in Roger Levy's Computational Psycholinguistics Lab at MIT BCS. I obtained a PhD in computer science from MIT EECS where I was a member of CSAIL, CBMM and InfoLab.
Before coming to MIT, I completed a Masters degree in computational linguistics at Saarland University and the University of Nancy, and a Bachelor's degree in cognitive science and Amirim honors program at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

My research lies on the intersection of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and cognitive science. I currently study how eye movements during reading can be used to infer reader characteristics and cognitive state, and improve NLP. Other related interests include multilingualism, evaluation methodology and grounded language acquisition.
