Tzipi Horowitz- Kraus, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor and the head of the Educational Neuroimaging Group in the Faculty of Education in Science and Technology in the Technion. Tzipi received her B.S. (2002) in biology and her M.S. in Neurobiology from the department of Neurobiochemistry at the Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel (2004). Her M.A. in the clinical program for diagnosis and treatment of learning disabilities (2007) and her Ph.D. (2009) were awarded by the University of Haifa in Israel from the Edmond J Safra Brain Center for the Study of Learning Disabilities. After completion of her PhD she conducted post-doctoral research at the University of Haifa that determined behavioral and electroencephalographic measures following intervention programs for children with learning disabilities as well as studies aimed at developing objective measures to assess the effectiveness of interventions for reading difficulties. In 2011, Dr. Horowitz-Kraus was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship and moved to the USA to join the Pediatric Neuroimaging Research Consortium Cincinnati Children's Research Foundation for her post-doctoral research. Today, at the Technion, she is using advanced neuroimaging tools including fMRI, DTI and EEG to better understand the role of executive functions in reading disabilities in children in order to develop more effective interventions.
