PhD Student

I am a PhD student in the Movement Ecology Lab, working on aspects of the movement ecology of the Egyptian fruit bat, Rousettus aegyptiacus. My main general scientific interests are conservation biology, population genetics, the flora and fauna of Israel, climate dynamics and synoptic and mesoscale meteorology.
In my MSc research, I employed genetic markers to study how the extent and patterns of gene flow via pollen dispersal in Pinus halepensis (Aleppo pine) populations are affected by fire – a major and common gap-creating disturbance in Mediterranean habitats.
