Diana heads up most of the environmental DNA (eDNA) research at AFSC in Juneau. Projects include studies of species-movement related to climate change, leveraging eDNA to augment data collected on trawl surveys, and performing experiments to better understand the distribution and abundance of marine eDNA. Diana started working with the Alaska Fisheries Science Center in April 2021. She received her PhD in Ocean Sciences from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2019. Her projects apply genetic methods across a range of ecological questions including population genetic structure of fishes and seabirds, larval dispersal, and genetic species identification.
