Gili is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He studies population genetic theory, eco-evolutionary dynamics, and conservation genomics. In addition, Gili is thinking about ethical frameworks for emerging genetic editing technologies, such as gene drives.
Keith completed his PhD in Zoology at Tel-Aviv University, studying evolution of signaling in different systems. At the lab, Keith is studying gene drive dynamics, looking at gene drive spillovers between species and demographic impacts on gene drive spread. Keith also has a BA in English Literature, working on Dickens’ observations on the process of urbanization.
Keren is an Azrieli postdoctoral scholar studying the population genomic effects of fragmentation in Black Howler monkeys. Keren completed her MSc in Conservation Biology at Columbia University, and her PhD in Anthropology at the University of Toronto.
Amir is studying the factors that generate hierarchical population structure, look at large genomic datasets of different species. He is using network and information theory methods to describe and compare population structure.
Shahar completed his BSc in CS at the computational biology program, and has continued in the program for his Masters. Shahar is working on developing computational approaches for studying how different classes of alleles contribute information on population structure. He is studying large genomic datasets, both human and non-human.
Or is a 3rd year student at the computational biology program at the CS department. In a collaborative project with the Kolodny lab, Or is looking at genomic data of different species, studying discrepancies between estimates of effective population size and how they relate to conservation status.
