Currently my group is involved in research projects which are carried out in collaboration with researchers from the Hebrew University (Earth Science, Archaeology, Life Science), the Geological Survey of Israel, Weizmann Institute, GFZ - Potsdam, Germany, Columbia University, University of California San Diego, University of Michigan, and the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.  These projects include:

1.      Sourcing contemporary atmospheric aerosols and desert dust

2.     Records of atmospheric dust as tracers of paleo-climate

3.     The effect of aerosol composition on cloud formation processes

4.     The dark side of ancient metallurgy: Measuring toxic metals and metallic isotopes (and aDNA) in human populations and in artifacts to trace the impact of early industries through time
