Biographical Sketch

Ariel Zvielli completed his undergraduate studies in Psychology and Computer Science at the University of Haifa. Ariel is currently on his fifth year of doctorate studies in the Haifa University Psychology department and a member of the International Research Collaborative on Anxiety.

Both his research and clinical orientation was initially influenced by his work with children and their families at-risk at Tirat Hacarmel welfare services, during his undergraduate studies. His current research interests are focused on mechanisms underlying the development and maintenance of anxiety and traumatic stress related disorders. His MA thesis research was focused on elucidating malleable, cognitive-affective factors that may be associated with risk and resilience to psychopathology following traumatic stress exposure. His PhD dissertation is focused on how emotional attention influences the development and maintenance of psychopathologies. Specifically, Ariel’s research is aimed to conceptualize and measure emotional attention as a dynamic process in time. Furthermore, together with the OML team, he develops novel, computerized intervention delivering real-time feedback on emotional attention, designed to enhance attentional control and awareness to emotional attention. Ariel’s research is intended to generate knowledge to advance clinical implications of attentional processes to treatment and prevention of psychopathology and addictions.
