Trine Bilde 

Principal Investigator (PI)

Professor and Centre director at the Department of Biology - Genetics, Ecology & Evolution, Aarhus University

Research focus on Evolutionary Biology, her group (SpiderLab) works on population genetics and functional ecology of arthropods.

Philip Francis Thomsen

Co-PI

Associate Professor at the Department of Biology - Genetics, Ecology & Evolution, Aarhus University

Research focus on Molecular Ecology, he is head of the environmental DNA (eDNA) group working on biodiversity studies using high-throughput sequencing.


Marjo Saastamoinen

Co-PI

Associate professorat the Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HiLIFE), Helsinki University, Finland
