Interest: 
I am bird ringer since 2004 and director of Israeli Bird Ringing Center since 2015. My interest with moult started during the ringing working and my intensive work on moult study started in 2012.
Since 2015 I am also M.Sc student in the Movement Ecology Lab. I study the effect of moult on flight performance in passerines.
