Ran is a PhD candidate in clinical psychology. His research focuses on the cognitive mechanisms of control which are involved in situations of contradicting task demands. By using diverse tools of assessment, he inspects the operation of different mechanisms of cognitive control (e.g., proactively controlled vs. reactively prompted), explores the costs and benefits of the operation of each mechanism, and examines how such processes may be ameliorated in individuals suffering from impaired cognitive control functioning.
