University of MontanaMissoula, MT
I received my Bachelors in Biology from Tel Aviv University and my Masters in Organismal Biology and Ecology from the University of Montana. I am interested in understanding population trajectories and dynamics in the realm of conservation biology. The two main research aspects I plan to explore are (1) the mechanisms that drive population dynamics and (2) the adaptation of various tools from the fields of genetics and microbiology to improve our ability to evaluate population trends and structures.
During the past 2 summers, Rebecca Wahl, a PhD student from the wildlife program, and I have led a mark-recapture project of Boreal Toads at Lost Trail National Wildlife Refuge in northwestern MT. The aim of this project is to gain an understanding of both the population dynamics and the reproductive ecology of this sensitive species by being able to estimate population trends and track year-to-year breeding patterns and success.
