Current group members

Dr. Oshri Borgman

Group leader

I am an environmental hydrology and soil science researcher interested in fundamental processes and mechanisms.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Universite de Rennes 1 in Rennes, France, and at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel.

I completed my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Soil and Water Sciences and later obtained my Ph.D. from the Faculty of Agriculture, Food, and Environment.

In my spare time, I nurture a very unsuccessful career as an amateur bassist and enjoy spending time with my family.

You can see my full CV here.
