Kara Andres

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Affiliation: Living Earth Collaborative

Kara Andres is an aquatic ecologist who applies molecular approaches to study aquatic biodiversity, the spread of invasive species, and the ecological consequences of human impacts in freshwater systems. Her research has explored the use of environmental DNA (eDNA) approaches to study the population genetics and abundance of invasive fishes. As a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Living Earth Collaborative, she will collaborate with Dr. Fangqiong Ling (WUSTL) and Dr. Jason Knouft (SLU) to investigate the microbiomes of native and invasive freshwater fishes to better understand the role of the microbiome in invasion success.
