Dr Victoria Pritchard

Victoria Pritchard is an evolutionary biologist who designs and applies genetic tools to understand how and why populations diverge and what this means for their management.

Currently, she is a Senior Researcher at the UHI Institute for Biodiversity and Freshwater Conservation in Scotland, where she leads work on the genomic basis of salmon migration timing and the genetic management of Scottish salmon stocks – as well as applying population genetic and eDNA approaches to guide the conservation of a much broader range of freshwater species.
