Einat studies visual perception and attention, with a focus on low-level and mid-level processes. She holds a BA in Psychology and Music, MA in Cognitive Psychology and Human Factors, and a PhD in Psychology, awarded by the Department of Psychology at the University of Haifa, Israel.
Following graduation, she held postdoc positions at KU Leuven in Belgium, working with Prof. Johan Wagemans, and at EPFL in Switzerland, working with Prof. Michael Herzog, where she studied perceptual organization in the contexts of depth perception and visual illusions. She further held a postdoc position at UGent, Belgium, where she worked in an international multidisciplinary consortium (Mac-Brain), and specialized in EEG methods while studying attention-control and visuomotor integration.
Einat won a Marie-Składowska-Curie Individual Fellowship for her postdoc at EPFL and is now a registered expert for the European Commission, evaluating proposals for MSC-PF scheme.
Research and scholarship
My current research focuses on the relationship between attention and perceptual objects, and the dissociation between direct and indirect measures of perceptual organization. To investigate these questions, Einat incorporates psychophysical experiments in the lab and online, EEG experiments, and advanced research methods.
I have ten years of experience in developing and delivering teaching materials and student assessment for undergraduate courses. Specifically, I taught courses on Introduction to Psychology, Research Methods, Statistics (including SPSS), and academic writing to first- and second-year students in several undergraduate programs in social sciences at three HEIs in Israel. Furthermore, I delivered lectures on Perception and was involved in preparing course materials for an EEG lab practical at UGent.
I successfully supervised undergraduate and postgraduate research projects, a MSc thesis, and a visiting PhD student at UGent, and was heavily involved in other postgraduate theses before that. Additionally, I have provided assessment for undergraduate and postgraduate research projects and theses, both in the departmental and faculty levels at UGent.
