Griffin Goldstein Hill

PhD candidate Nord


Griffin is a PhD student at Nord University in Bodø. Coming from a background in genetics, his PhD research seeks to elucidate the driving factors of genetic differentiation in Norwegian macroalgae populations. Specifically, the project focuses on the genetic population structure of Saccharina latissima, a seaweed of growing aquaculture interest in Europe, along climate gradients and between farmed and wild populations. He is also interested in exploring how we can facilitate the integration of information from modeling, genetics, and other approaches to catalyze sustainable aquaculture development in Norway and beyond. When not tangled in kelp or staring at R, Griffin enjoys skiing and science fiction novels.
