Ecology & Evolutionary Biology

Paraskevi Niki Lampri is a PhD candidate at the Biology Department of the School of Applied Science in the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens. Her research is focused on the phylogeny, ecology and population genetics of macroinvertebrate taxa inhabiting insular aquatic systems, and especially those taxa that have been assigned a threatened status in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Inland waters support a very large number of species and they are considered biodiversity ‘hot spots’. The basic approach for assessing the biodiversity of the freshwater systems will rely on the implementation of a new next generation sequencing technique (NGS), a technique that has never been applied before in the freshwater systems of Greece. Professor Brant C. Faircloth, who is a pioneer in the application of NGS techniques, has happily accepted to host her at his lab in the Department of Life Sciences at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. The outcome of her research visit will be the hands-on experience she will gain and the application of the technique in her own samples for the first time in Greece. After the completion of her PhD, Paraskevi is interested in pursuing a lifelong career in academia. Apart from studies, Paraskevi is a passionate Latin dancer and a traveller.
