“My name is Doron Pinko, and I am a Master’s Student at Ben Gurion University at the Department of Earth and Environmental Science, in Sigal Abramovich’s Foraminifera lab.
Foraminifera are marine unicellular eukaryotes. They have significant ecological and environmental importance. We can use foraminifera as small recording devices that record the changes around them. These records allow us to study the marine environment at present and in past times, even millions of years ago in ancient environments. Similar to corals, some foraminifera host symbiont algae inside their cell. My research focuses specifically on this algal-bearing foraminifera that their fate under expected global warming is a major concern.
I have a double major BSc in life science and earth and environmental sciences from Ben Gurion University. My interest in research started already when I was a Bachelor’s student, and I was immediately fascinated by this amazing microscopic world.”
