I am working in the field of animal movement ecology with a focus on multisensory navigation and visual guidance. 
I am using my background in mathematics, dynamic systems theory and computer science to develop new analytical 
methods to analyse the influence of various sensory modalities, like visual cues and their involvement in visual 
guidance, as well as magnetic, infrasound and olfactory cues and their involvement in navigation. I am also 
interested in other aspects of flight including migration, flight aerodynamics and kinematics, group dynamics in 
flight. As part of my work in the Movement ecology lab at hebrew university of Jerusalem i am responsible for the 
development of software for analysis of tracking data gathered from a reverse-gps tracking system (ATLAS), track 
analysis and mathematical modelling.
