Giulia Perroud

PhD student interested in interactions between evolutionary processes and human activities.

Salmonid populations are wonderful systems to study these interactions. Many are both harvested and managed by humans, and they typically consist in mixture of life history forms that can quickly react to environmental conditions. The significance of genetic diversity, allelic frequency changes and plasticity depend on the species, population history and managing practices.

My thesis aims at determining how natural and artificial pressures interact and affect the evolutionary potential of an Alpine whitefish (Coregonus cf. suidteri) population propagated by supportive breeding.

I appreciate collaborating with direct stakeholders of a supportive breeding program on applied and fundamental research projects and I wish my research will continue to dialogue with society.
