Tell me a little about yourself and about what you do.

I am a psychologist, and I am on the faculty of the School of Psychological Sciences at Tel Aviv University, where I head the Symbolic Cognition and Interaction Lab. I am especially interested in the way abstract thought and language enable us to imagine and predict the future.
