I am a PhD candidate at CREED - the Center for Research in Experimental Economics and political Decision making and at the Psychology Department at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). I hold a master degree in Social Psychology from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) and a Bachelor degree in Psychology and Management from BGU as well.
I am interested in decision making and behavioral ethics. I study the dark side of pro sociality, specifically how people's pro social tendencies, such as reciprocity and cooperation, leads to breaking ethical rules and corruption. Additionally, I am interested in the underlying mechanisms (e.g., attention allocation) that enables people to create justifications for their lies.
