Senior Scientist

Ph.D. 1982, Tel Aviv University, Israel
At IOLR since 1988

Research interests:
Studies on marine invertebrates (primarily corals and tunicates), immunology and developmental biology (cellular, molecular and whole organism levels), aging processes in marine invertebrates, cell cultures and stem cells from marine invertebrates, population genetics of corals and tunicates using molecular tools, coral reef restoration, water genotoxicity and thraustochytids biology.
