Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biology, Stanford University

I am a postdoctoral fellow in Marc Feldman's lab in the Stanford University Department of Biology. I received my bachelor’s degree from the Hebrew University, in Physics and Humanities, my MSc from the Hebrew University, in Ecology and Evolution, studying molecular evolution in Guy Sella's lab, and my PhD from Tel Aviv University, working in Arnon Lotem's lab in the department of Zoology.

I study a wide range of evolutionary questions, from molecular evolution, through the selection of behavioral strategies and the evolution of cognitive learning mechanisms, to the impact that the microbiome has on its host's reaction to selective pressures that act on it.
In a recent collaboration in Marc Feldman's lab at Stanford I have also been working on cultural evolution and the way that creativity shapes the trajectory of change of human technology.
