Maya Leshkowitz
Ph.D. student
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Jerusalem, Israel
Maya Leshkowitz received her M.Sc. from Weizmann Institute of Science, under the supervision of Oded Goldreich.

Maya discovered her love for solving mathematical questions as a child when she would play and solve riddles together with her grandfather, Shimon Even. In graduate school, although she was interested in Cognitive Science and human behavior, the Math and Computer Science courses at the Hebrew University sparked her old passion and led her to pursue a M.Sc. in Computer Science. Currently, she is a Ph.D student in the Cognitive Science department at the Hebrew University, under the supervision of Ran R. Hassin. She is interested in how people segment information into chunks (such as by events or categories) and how segmentation affects their attitudes and evaluations.

When she is not doing research, she enjoys drawing, dancing, and traveling.
