Sunny is interested in the topic of irrigation systems and trees so he conducted a research about trees' strategies with teammates from the UK and Brazil and tried to work out how trees will adapt to climate change in Europe, a place which is predicted to become a semi-amid area like Israel. He and his teammates handled and visualised data by adapting their own knowledge and with the help of computer and programmes, and reference to previous research studies in order to explain patterns on different graphs. Apart from laboratory work, Sunny also spent a week in a field trip studying the wildlife, ecology, archaeology, and history of the Judean desert through first-hand experience including extensive nature hikes, field experiments, wildlife observation and demonstrations.
The summer programme broke geological boundaries. By meeting, working, and interacting with more than 75 participants from over 17 countries, Sunny appreciates their perseverance, curiosity, as well as their good attitude of being inquisitive to consult mentors and professors when they have got doubts related to science. Their curiosity also reminds him to be brave in taking the initiative to ask questions and search for other possible research exposure and opportunities. He thanks the Faculty, the Croucher Foundation, and the Weizmann Institute for giving him an once-in-a-lifetime learning experience and exposure, of which all he will bring along with in his study and future career.
