Dr. Selina Brace is a biologist who works with ancient and degraded DNA to investigate species-level and evolutionary processes. She is a researcher in the Earth Sciences Department and manages the NHM ancient DNA laboratory.
Dr. Brace’s research centres on the use of genetic information from museum specimens to understand taxonomic and evolutionary relationships, population structure and history, and the ecological impact of past events. She has worked on a wide range of taxa including insects, rodents and prehistoric humans, with a special interest in highly degraded tropical material from the Caribbean, Indonesia and South America.
Her current projects include working with museum bees, investigating land-use change in Indonesia and population structure in Andean bears from Colombia.
