Hi, I’m Itamar Shatz, and I’m a PhD candidate at Cambridge University, where I study native-language influence during second-language acquisition.

I also author two popular sites: Effectiviology, which is dedicated to information about science and philosophy that have practical applications, and Solving Procrastination, which is dedicated to information about procrastination and about how you can deal with it.

Overall, I’m primarily interested in taking valuable research findings and making them accessible so that people can use them to improve their lives and solve their everyday problems.
