Gregory Maes did his postgraduate training at the University of Leuven (Belgium) on population and conservation genetics of aquatic organisms, focusing on exploited and endangered species such as eels, flatfishes, pikes, hybridogenetic frogs and polyploid invasive carps. He then spent 6 years doing various postdocs examining the applications of population⁄conservation genomics approaches to exploited freshwater and marine fishes at various spatio-temporal scales.
His main interest lies in multidisciplinary connectivity assessments and the genomic basis of fisheries induced evolution.
