Kim Præbel


Professor/Group leader

Job description

My research covers the genetics, evolution, and molecular ecology of Arctic and sub-Arctic fauna, especially fishes. I am studying adaptive radiations, how reproductive barriers to gene flow are build up and broken down, and how communities evolve in time and space. To understand the chronology underlying these topics, I have implemented e/aDNA based analyses in my research, including SoTA lab and bioinformatic facilities.
