Jun.-Prof. Dr. Ann-Marie Waldvogel

I am a passionate biologist and always curious to learn and understand how the environment shapes the evolution of populations/species/biodiversity. For my research, I combine field work and common garden experiments with NGS data and population genomics analysis -> my research field can be called "experimental population genomics".
