Kai Lohbeck is a biologist studying how planktonic algae can adapt to climate change. He has a PhD in evolutionary biology and worked in several interdisciplinary research projects in Germany, Norway, Sweden, the Arctic, and Antarctica. Kai enjoys teaching and communicating science as much as doing research. Besides his passion for algae, he is interested in sustainability and human impact on the environment. In 2018, Kai supported the Young Scientist Support and Academic Partner Relations team during the Lindau Meeting.
