Scientist

Ph.D. 2011, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel
At IOLR since 2011

Research interests:
Studies on dynamics of convectively driven marginal seas, sea strait physics, small scale oceanic processes such as density currents and open ocean convection, and air-sea interactions. In particular, over the past several years I have been using oceanic models at various complexities (oceanic general circulation model, box model, hydraulic models for sea straits) combined with different oceanic measurements/proxies to study the dynamics of the Red Sea (during the last 20,000 years) and of the Gulf of Eilat.
