Ohad received his PhD from the Tel Aviv University faculty of law. His dissertation, ‘The Right of Contractual Regret: A Psychological Perspective’, explored the relations between the parties’ emotions and the right to regret in modern contact law and theory. Ohad also holds an LL.B. (Cum Laude) and a B.A in psychology from Tel-Aviv University and an LL.M. (1st in Class) from The European Program in Law and Economics (EMLE).

Before joining the Federmann Cyber Security Research Center, Ohad was a post-doctoral fellow at the Safra center for Ethics and the Science-Po Law School where he explored the relationship between emotions, social norms, and legal liability. His research interests include private law theory, law & psychology, and behavioral law and economics.

Ohad’s research at the Federmann Cyber Security Research Center focuses on the interaction between AI technology, social norms, trust, and their regulatory and legal implication. It asks, therefore, how should AI be ‘educated’ and what kind of ‘personality’ should AI have when interacting with humans and with other machines.
