My name is Patrick Krapf, and I am the coordinator of the Myrmecological News Blog. In spring 2023, I joined the SpecIAnt group of Jonna Kulmuni at the University of Helsinki, and I am also a guest researcher at the University of Amsterdam. Before that, I was a postdoc fellow at the Molecular Ecology Group at the University of Innsbruck. I am currently working on hybridising Formica wood ants. I explore hybrid genome evolution and the potential repeatability of hybridisation outcomes.

Besides hybridisation, I am also interested in (ant) behaviour, behavioural ecology, genomics and population genetics, and life history. I also enjoy doing sports (hiking, biking, etc.). And if I’m not in the lab, in the field, I spend time with my friends or binge-watch TV series.
If you have any questions or suggestions in general or related to the blog, please drop me a line: krapfpatrick[at] or just follow me on Mastodon or X (formerly Twitter)
