Professor Tali Mass received her PhD from the Hebrew University, Israel, focusing on coral physiology. She then did a post-doctoral fellowship on coral biomineralization at Rutgers University, USA, in the laboratory of Prof. Paul Falkowski. In 2014 she started her own laboratory at the university of Haifa, Israel, where she continues studying the basic mechanism responsible for calcium carbonate (CaCO3) precipitation in calcifying organisms, specifically corals. She targets her study on how corals respond physiologically and morphologically to changes in their environment from the molecular to the organism level.
