YAEL MILLGRAM

GRADUATE STUDENT

I am currently a PhD student in the Psychology Department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, supervised by Prof. Maya Tamir. My PhD focuses on emotional motivation in depression. Specifically, I'm interested in what depressed individuals want to feel, why they want to feel the way they do, and what are the consequences of their emotional preferences on emotion regulation and mental health.

GRADUATE STUDENT

I am a PhD student at the Psychology department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Under the supervision of Prof. Maya Tamir, my doctoral work focuses on interpersonal aspects of emotion and emotion regulation, especially in dyadic interactions.
