Camila Barría Díaz


Camila is an Agronomist Engineer specialized in environmental management from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. She conducted research in the genetic barcode of Chilean reptiles to obtain her bachelor’s degree. She completed her masters' thesis on family relationship and extra-pair paternity in gentoo penguins (Pygoscelis papua).

During all her years as student, she worked as teaching assistant in different modules (Climate Change, Biological Conservation, Genetic and Biotechnology, Workshop in Ecosystems). She also worked with the local government and private institutions under the University’s scheme “SinLimites UC” to develop mitigation strategies against Climate Change.

Camila is now working towards an MRes at the School of BEES (UCC), under the supervision of MESA PI, Tim Sullivan, and Simon Harrison.

Research Interests

Camila is interested in the effects of Climate Change and the mitigation measures that can be used to face them from an ecological perspective, and how to control floods or deal with drought. She is also interested in the use of molecular tools to understand the climate change impact in different species and their conservation genetic status.
