“My name is Tal Gavriel. I’m a Ph.D. student at Tel Aviv University, School of Zoology, under the supervision of prof. Yoni Belmaker.
I study the ecology of fish communities in the Mediterranean Sea. In my research, I examine the differences between the current and past (Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs) fish communities. Comparing those communities can help us understand the influence of threats such as overfishing, species invasion from the Red Sea, and increased seawater temperature on the marine ecosystem.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Marine Science from Ruppin Academic Center, and I did my master’s degree also at Tel Aviv University at the Belmaker lab, in which I studied the behavior of lionfish at the Red Sea.
I love being at sea, and I’m trying to be there as much as possible, either at work or in my free time.”
