Diana is a new Assistant Professor in the Division of Biological Sciences at the University of California San Diego. Diana completed her M.Sc. at the University of Victoria in 2010, where she worked on opsin gene duplication and divergence in Poeciliid fish. In 2016 she completed her Ph.D at the University of British Columbia, where she studied the genetic basis of adaptation in the threespine stickleback to predation and other sources of divergent selection. For her postdoctoral work she took up a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship at the University of Bern; during this time Diana studied parallel genomic differentiation and genetic sources of evolutionary constraint.
