Research Interests / Job description
Separation, Identification and Quantification of small molecules using advanced analytical methods


I did my Ph.D in organic chemistry at Tel-Aviv University under the supervision of Prof. Shlomo Rozen, specializing in "Oxygen Transfer Reactions Using the HOF•CH3CN Complex". During this period I acquired extensive experience in Multistep Organic Synthesis, Multinuclear NMR Spectroscopy, HPLC, GC, UV-Vis, Fluorescence and IR spectroscopy. I joined the ARO in 2008 and established the Metabolomic Unit, specializing in identification and quantification of small molecules (metabolites) using a variety of state-of-the-art MS-based instruments and analysis software.

The repertoire of capabilities includes identification of known and unknown small molecule based on accurate mass (UPLC-QTOF-MS), quantification of small molecule, including plant hormones, a variety of polyphenols and glycoalkaloids using triple-quad based MS (UPLC-Triple Quadrupole-MS), as well as identification and quantification of volatile molecules such as terpenes, sterols and fatty acids using HS-SPME/GC-MS. The unit functions in collaboration with many research groups in the ARO in diverse projects and is equipped to address most questions related to identification and quantification of small molecules.
