Roy Ben Dor Cohen
And also (or more importantly):
- Cognitive Psychologist
- Animal Lover
- Flamenco Aficionado
Roy Bendor Cohen is an innovation facilitator and account manager on the SIT team. After completing his thesis on the mental processes that underlie creative thinking on the MA Interdisciplinary Programme for outstanding students in cognitive psychology (Tel Aviv University), he joined the SIT team in order to apply his conclusions outside the lab.
Roy’s roots are deep in the educational world: he lectured at the Dov Lautman Unit for Science Oriented Youth, taught Spanish, served as an instructor in the ‘Computer Science Olympics’ and tutored schoolchildren with special needs.
He lived in Madrid for five years, taught Spanish for three years, travelled Latin America for six months and still volunteers in the ‘Escuelita’ where he helps in translations for Latin immigrants. He admires flamenco and classic guitar, is a big fan of Improv theater, enjoys reading books and talking about philosophy. Roy is fluent in three languages and can get around in two others – a linguistic trait he has inherited from his mother. He has been resident in three countries and travelled in more than thirty.
