Tslil Ofir has joined us to start her PhD project on how language meaning and syntax may be embodied in the experience of language forms among bilinguals.
She completed a BA in Psychology (honours program, 1st class/with distinction) at Bar-Ilan University, during which she worked as a research assistant and conducted a sub-research examining the improvement in linguistic abilities of adolescents with autism, following a social skills intervention. She has also acquired experience working with clinical population while training in the public clinic of the university and at Sheba Medical Centre.
She has kindly explained some myths around falafel and introduced several interesting Israeli dishes. We all get very excited and hope to try her food once the pandemic is over.
