David Díez



Graduated in Biology and master in Conservation Genetics I'm a Ph.D. candidate in Population Genetics and Molecular Evolution at the University of Girona (Spain). My thesis project is focused in discovering the genetic basis of the evolutionary framework that underlies the successful life history of the mosquitofish (Gambusia holbrooki), a highly aggressive invader in worldwide streams. As a Postdoctoral Research Associate I have worked at the University College London, studying processes that have modelled human populations using simulations and ancient DNA data. Currently I am a Postdoctoral Reseacher in Love Dalén's lab at the Swedish Museum of Natural History. Here we use state-of-the-art laboratory and statistical techniques to obtain, extract, sequence and analyze ancient and modern DNA from megafauna aiming to contribute to explain population dynamics leading to extinction.
