I am a graduate student in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University supervised by James Gross. My research is focused on understanding the unfolding and regulation of the emotional processes that shape group behavior. One line of my work is focused on the regulation of emotions in groups. A second is focused on emotional dynamics between group members and the regulation of such dynamics. A third pays specific attention to regulation of emotional dynamics on social media.
To test theoretically derived hypotheses in these three lines of work, I employ a multi-method approach that integrates behavioral experiments, EEG methods, big-data analysis, and computational modeling. I believe that insights from my work can contribute to the understanding of the behavior of large groups as well as to similar processes that may occur in groups of smaller sizes such as families, sports teams, and organizations.
Before starting my PhD, I worked as a journalist and a writer. In 2016, my first novel ‘A City Forsaken’ (עיר הנידחת) was published in Israel.
