Denis Mosquera

Denis has worked as an assistant on several landbird projects in Galapagos since 2012, including the project to conserve the critically endangered Mangrove Finch.

In 2018, he graduated from a Masters program at the University of Vienna. His research was focused on understanding the impact of Philornis downsi on the Little Vermilion Flycatcher.

Denis was recently hired to search for natural enemies, specifically parasitic wasps, that could be used in a biological control program against Philornis downsi. This work is on mainland Ecuador and is in conjunction with our collaborators at University of Minnesota, ESPOL, and the National Biodiversity Institute.
