I have been studying carbon sequestration of various plants used on green roofs. I am currently working analyzing and writing up a study that dealt with comparisons of grey water versus tap water, various growing substrates and different plants. In addition, I am conducting a project to determine how drainage height affects plant community structure.

My research focuses on the integration of photovoltaic panels and green roofs, and the effects on plant and insect diversity and panel efficiency. 
More broadly, I am interested in the effects of microhabitat heterogeneity, such as that produced by solar panels, on biodiversity.

For my PhD I will be investigating factors affecting spider diversity and the role of spiders in structuring communities on green roofs. In my M.Sc. my research focused on explaining spider diversity in pomegranate orchards in Israel. In this research, the effects of climatic gradient and landscape properties on spider diversity in pomegranate orchards were investigated by testing predictions based on general ecological hypotheses. A novel hypothesis, the agricultural landscape evenness hypothesis (ALE), was tested. I am interested in green roofs, biodiversity, global climate change, conservation biological control, arachnology and entomology.
