Henrik Christiansen

Henrik Christiansen is a marine biologist working as a PhD student in 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 is now excited to focus on the high latitudes. Being trained at the Universities of Hamburg, Bremen, Bergen, and Gothenburg he has a broad 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 Continent and the Weddell Sea. In his free time Henrik enjoys almost any sport and/or water related activity.
