I am a PhD student in the Movement Ecology Lab, working on relating movement and behavior parameters to fitness in GPS tracked white storks (Ciconia ciconia). My main general scientific interests are behavioral ecology, conservation biology and the flora and fauna of Israel.
In my MSc research, I studied the impact of artificial night lightening on the activity patterns of rodents (Acomys) in the Judea dessert in Israel.
