Kay Lucek

Kay is an SNSF Eccellenza Assistent Professor at the University of Neuchâtel. His research aims to advance our understanding on how biodiversity evolves and is maintained. To address this  genomic tools are especially used, ranging from metabarcoding to whole genome sequencing. A key goal is to understand how chromosomes may be reshuffled and what happens when species come into contact again following their range expansions since the last ice age.
