I have earned my PhD in Occupational Therapy from Tel-Aviv University in 2021, under the supervision of Prof. Debbie Rand. My thesis focused on developing an innovative intervention using tablets for enhancing cognition, and preventing cognitive deterioration of older adults with mild cognitive impairment.

 

My research interests relate to the geriatric population with a focus on cognitive and functional decline in old age. In addition, I am interested in integrating technologies as cognitive therapy tools for this population.

 

In 2022 I joined the Computerized Neurotherapy lab for a post-doctoral fellowship, under the supervision of Dr. Mor Nahum. My current research focuses on examining the effect of video game for cognitive training on depression signs and cognition.
