Henrik Christiansen

Henrik Christiansen is a marine biologist currently working as a postdoc at KU Leuven, Belgium. As part of a national Antarctic research program he investigates the connectivity and adaptation of Southern Ocean fish. After working and studying with(in) subtropical to temperate ecosystems, he has taken a keen interest in the high latitudes. Being trained at the Universities of Hamburg, Bremen, Bergen, and Gothenburg he has a solid scientific background and a collaborative international approach to science. His current project relies heavily on molecular and bioinformatics work to elucidate genomic variability within populations. Several research cruises are part of his field experience, the latest one heading towards the Antarctic Peninsula with a sailboat.
