I graduated from Haifa University with a BA in Nursing (2009), and worked as a nurse for 7 years.

My research, supervised by Dr. Orly Rubinsten and Dr. Bat-Sheva Hadad, aims at investigating the perception of magnitude in dyscalculia. Specifically, our research asks whether individuals diagnosed with dyscalculia are impaired in size discrimination and whether such basic size computations are intact in more natural settings where monocular depth cues allow size constancy.
