Princeton University. He received his Ph.D. in Neurobiology from the Weizmann Institute in Israel. He was a postdoctoral fellow at NYU before moving to Princeton. His research program aimed to understand how the brain processes real-life information and interacts with the environment, focusing on human face-to-face communication and natural language processing. In recent years the research has been expanding to explore deep learning as a computational framework for modeling the neural basis of cognition in real-life contexts and children's language development.
