Research Profile

Jens Carlsson

Biography

Research Interests

Jens’ research interests are in conservation, ecological and population genetics, as well as evolutionary biology. Jens employs genetic tools at population and individual levels to study genetic questions (gene flow, genetic drift, effective population size and selection) and to couple genetics with behaviours (kin-biased behaviours, reproductive success, mate choice, migratory behaviour and life-history). Jens is also interested in conservation genetics, functional genomics and studies that combine population genetics, behaviour and ecology. In addition, Jens is interested in theoretical population genetics based on simulations and co-evolution of host-parasite systems. Jens’ research is primarily focused on aquatic organisms including fishes, shellfish and hydrothermal vent and methane seep fauna.
