Horowitz-Kraus, Tzipi

Associate Professor
History Highlights:
  • Tzipi Horowitz-Kraus, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education in Science and Technology and the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering, heading the Educational Neuroimaging Group (ENIG). She is also an Associate Professor (PAR) at Kennedy Krieger Institute and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Between 2013 and 2021, Dr. Horowitz-Kraus was appointed an Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati and the Scientific Director of the Reading and Literacy Discovery Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. In her research, Dr. Horowitz-Kraus focuses on the involvement of cognitive processes in language and reading development. She is using AI tools to examine predictions of neurobiological changes associated with interventions in children and to characterize changes in cognitive and emotional abilities in children (such as facial expression). She also develops classifiers to differentiate children with or without developmental impairments and to group several signal sources into matrices that characterize interactions during language-based interventions (either human or robot-based). The goal is to track these neurobiological and physiological signals abilities from birth and to use interventions to modify them. In addition to serving as an editor in several scientific journals, Dr Horowitz-Kraus has authored more than 90 peer-reviewed papers and is the principal investigator of several competitive grants focusing on child brain development regarding reading and language development. She is also a board member of the Society of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Society (Flux) and an active member in scientific societies focusing on child brain development, neuroscience, and reading.
Research Interests:
  • Robot-child interaction
  • Brain development and neuroimaging data
  • Reverse engineering in reading and language processing
