My research interests include stream water quality measurements
by using geochemical tracers such as ionic ratios, isotopic analysis and rare
earth elements to identify water sources of the stream. The research is
collaborative with the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (Halle
Germany) and with Goettingen University.

Research Interests:I am especially interested in identifying water pollution, the
sources of pollution and their impact on water bodies, seeking ways to
characterize and measure the pollutants and hopefully to prevent future
pollution by finding the source and offering alternative solutions. My research
deals with extracellular enzymes and attempts to characterize their activity
depending on the level of pollution in Lower Jordan River water.

Areas of interest and research:
My interests are the integration of the human field with the natural environment. I am interested in proper and sustainable planning and development, which is based on physical characteristics such as soil, hydrology and climate.
My master's thesis deals with the rehabilitation of damaged areas and their comparison to natural areas, using a hydrogeomorphological approach. The objective of this study is to improve the results of the rehabilitation process for the affected areas in the future.
Research - Zin:
An examination of the factors that affect the stability of natural and rehabilitated slopes in the Zin phosphate mine as a background for optimal rehabilitation (Research done by Gefen Lemel co-supervised by Jonathan Laronne and Eli Argaman).
Northeast Negev, Zin Valley Extreme arid climatic zone. In the area of the phosphate field Zin.
The purpose of the study:
The aim of this study is to recommend how to reduce erosion from reclaimed slopes with a hydrogeomorphological approach - a method used in mines in desert areas in the southwestern United States and Australia. Such a recommendation depends first and foremost on understanding the hydro geomorphic response of present rehabilitated slopes compared to the natural ones adjacent to the mining area. Two main methods, Structure-from-Motion (SfM) for measurement of gully-erosion and runoff plots for the examination of the amount of sediment discharged during natural rain events.
