I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Cognitive Computation Group at the Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Pennsylvania. I am working with Prof. Dan Roth.
I completed my Ph.D.at the Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing Lab at the School of Computer Science and Engineering of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, under the supervision of Prof. Ari Rappoport where I worked on the integration of semantic and cognitive information into Text Simplification and Machine Translation.
Previously, I graduated my master's degree
(magna cum laude) in Cognitive Science, under the supervision
of Prof. Ari Rappoport [dissertation]
(Cognitive Sciences Department's prize for outstanding thesis).
I previously completed a B.Sc. degree in Mathematics (extended
program) and Cognitive Sciences at the Hebrew University.
I was a fellow of the Language, Logic and Cognition Center (LLCC) from 2012 to 2016.
