Short Biography

I completed my PhD (psychology) at the University of Melbourne, and did my Postdoc at the Hebrew University (sociology). My research focuses on the interplay between social networks and organizational behavior, particularly examining how psychological traits and states, contexts and social networks co-evolve and influence each other. My research was funded by grants from the Israeli Science Foundation, from the Israeli Ministry of Science and Technology, and the Center for Advanced Studies in Jerusalem, and received international awards.
