Dominique MEDIODIA


Dom is a PhD Student at National Taiwan Normal University (TIGP program). His current work is on fish taxonomy and paleontology through otoliths, particularly in the Philippines.

He will be working to understand the relationship between phylogeny, morphology and biodiversity in fish otoliths over millions of years using 3D geometric morphometrics and machine learning approaches.



Diana obtained her Master's at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Kyiv, Ukraine. Being interested in evolutionary processes, she has been working with different molluscan taxa. Currently her interests focus on the hinge evolution and abnormalities in Bivalvia.

She is exploring the molluscan fauna of Szekou Formation in Taiwan. Her project is supported by the Academia Sinica.
