Current Position: Postdoctoral Fellow, Israeli Ministry of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Organization, Volcani Center.
I am a postdoc interested in the neural mechanisms of animal behavior, with an emphasis on circadian rhythms and sleep. My current focus is on the interplay between environmental factors and the circadian system leading to a temporal niche switch in different animal models. In my research, I combine behavioral observations with molecular biology and signal analysis. I joined Horacio’s lab after holding a postdoctoral researcher and a lecturer positions at Princeton University, and graduating with a Ph.D. from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel.
