Nir Sapir

I am a senior lecturer at the Department of Evolutionary and Environmental Biology at the University of Haifa. I study bird, bat and insect flight, specifically focusing on metabolism, movement and behavior, and how they are affected by environmental conditions.

My main hobby is birding

I am married to Nirit and father to Alon and Roni

About us

We are a group of scientists devoted to the study of animal flight, including animal movement ecology, behavior, physiology and biomechanics. We study wild animals in the field and in the lab using a diversity of research approaches. We welcome applications for M.Sc. and Ph.D. studies and post-doctoral work in our group at the Department of Evolutionary and Environmental Biology at the University of Haifa.
