The PhD thesis, supervised by Dr. Yaacov Lipkin, is on the Allelopathy among submerged hydropgytes from an ecological point of view. It is aimed at learning whether or not allelopathy may be a formative force in submerged plant communities in freshwater habitats.

The study started with submerged hydrophytes from Israel, later expanded to incorporate such plants from various places and habitats.
The initial stages of the study tested the effects of exudates from the submerged hydrophytes on bioassay plants. An experiment testing the effects of such exudates on a number of submerged hydrophytes is underway.
