Dr. Larissa Souza Arantes
Department of Evolutionary Genetics
Short curriculum vitae
I am a biologist interested in applying genetic tools in species conservation studies. I have experience in sea turtles population genetics, phylogeography, hybridization and genomics conservation. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research, in Berlin. I obtained my doctoral degree in Genetics at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil. In my research, I have investigated the hybridization between sea turtles along the Brazilian coast using genomic data.
