I am a post-doctoral fellow at the MySpace lab. I investigate cortical plasticity following visuo-motor training with virtual reality. To that end, I combine behavioural and fMRI analyses to study both experimentally induced spatial biases in healthy participants, and rehabilitation of patients suffering from hemispatial neglect. Before joining MySpace lab I completed my PhD with Prof. Rafi Malach at the Weizmann Institute of science in Israel.  I am a  Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS) holder (2017-2018), and a Marie Curie fellow (2018-2020).
