CV of Emil Aputsiaq Flindt Christensen

I was born in Greenland in 1988 and grew up in Denmark. I have always been fascinated with living beings and in school biology was always a favourite subject. During my university time, I developed a predilection for aquatic biology and as time progressed fish biology became my main area of interest.

I find working in research science extremely rewarding and I am thankful for being employed in a PhD position.
