Research Statement: 

I am a geoscientist interested in climatic and environmental changes and am seeking to develop novel approaches for tracing past variations. During my master’s, I used U-series isotopes to date uplifted coral reefs, from the Gulf of Aqaba, that were extensively altered to calcite. I dated the time of coral alteration and the age of original deposition in order to reconstruct sea-level (Bar et al., 2018; Yehudai et al., 2017). For my PhD research I have been using the geochemistry of ocean sediments from the North Atlantic to reconstruct changes in Atlantic-Ocean circulation associated with climatic shifts. I have also studied sediments from the Great Bahama Bank to infer dust supply fluctuations in response to the formation of the Sahara Desert.
