A new associate editor is joining GENETICS in population and evolutionary genetics. We’re excited to welcome Konrad Lohse to the editorial team.
Konrad Lohse is a population geneticist interested in learning about evolution in natural populations from genomic data. After a BSc at the University of St Andrews, he obtained a PhD at Edinburgh University under the mentorship of Nick Barton and Graham Stone working on inference of population history. Konrad is currently a Senior Lecturer at Edinburgh University, and he leads a research group that combines theoretical work on the coalescent with genomic studies of adaptation, chromosome evolution and speciation in insects (including various species of butterflies and Drosophila). His group has developed a coalescent-based method to scan genomes of recently diverged taxa for barriers to gene-flow.
