Maren Wellenreuther

Plant and Food Research & School of Biological Sciences, University of Auckland (New Zealand)

Maren Wellenreuther is a senior scientist at the Plant and Food Research and an associate professor at the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Auckland (New Zealand). Her research interest is broad but mainly aims at understanding how adaptive and non-adaptive evolutionary processes interact in nature. To this aim, she works on several areas including evolutionary ecology and genomics and focuses on topics such as sexual selection, adaptation, high-throughput phenomics, aquaculture, selective breeding and population demography. In recent years, she is mostly working on the development of accelerated breeding technologies to incorporate new fish species into aquaculture, but also on understanding the dynamics of genetic variation in the frame of evolution.
