Dr Giada Ferrari
Dr Giada Ferrari, Herbarium Genomics Research Assistant
Giada obtained her PhD in evolutionary biology from the University of Zurich, working on shotgun metagenomic approaches to detect pathogens in preserved soft tissues. She then held a postdoc position at the University of Oslo, focusing on ancient genomics of archaeological fish material.
Her research interests lie in genomics of natural history collections as well as methods development. At RBGE, Giada is helping with the planning and set up of an historic DNA laboratory, training people in ancient DNA techniques, as well as optimising workflows and protocols for sequencing herbarium specimens.
