Dr Amos Barkai

Dr Amos Barkai graduated in 1981 with a B. Sc. from Tel Aviv University. He obtained his Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Cape Town (UCT) in 1987, focusing on the population dynamics and predator-prey interactions in benthic populations. His Ph.D. work, which was published in Science Magazine, has been aired by the BBC, and is a regular feature in Marine Ecology textbooks.

During 1988 he participated in the first scientific diving expedition to Marion Island. Dr Barkai received the Oceania group prize for the best scientific publication based on his Ph.D. research on a marine topic. In 1989, Dr Barkai received the “South African Foundation for Research and Development Award” for distinguished postdoctoral scientists.

Together with Dr Mike Bergh, he has consulted extensively for various clients, focusing in particular on analytical work with complex data sets and the development of specialised commercial database and analytical solutions.
