I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Learning, Instruction and Teacher Education in the Faculty of Education of the University of Haifa.

My primary research interests focus on learners' epistemic thinking (i.e. thinking about knowledge and knowing) and digital literacy. I am particularly interested in studying learners' epistemic thinking in digital media contexts such as learning from multiple online information sources and from digital games. My research examines how learners’ metacognitive understandings of the nature of knowledge and knowing come into play when they engage in tasks such as evaluating and integrating conflicting information sources and reasoning about epistemic disagreement. I also engage, together with practitioner partners, in designing and testing curricula and scaffolds for promoting learners’ epistemic thinking and digital literacy in order to better understand the trajectories and mechanisms of epistemic growth.

My research has been funded by grants from the Israel Science Foundation (ISF) and the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF).

My paper "On the goals of epistemic education: Promoting apt epistemic performance", co-authored with Clark Chinn, won the Journal of the Learning Sciences Best Paper Award for 2018.
