David Cevallos


David is interested on working on the conservation and ecological restoration of sensitive areas within the islands, and a great opportunity is being part of the  Galapagos Verde  2050 (GV2050) Program. He did his Bachelor at the Army Polytechnic School (ESPE) in agricultural engineering. His master's and doctoral studies were carried out in Hungary. He completed his Ph.D. studies in ecological restoration at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest. His doctoral thesis was conducted on the delineation and evaluation of seed transfer zones by phenotypic traits as a guide for the native seed movement  between Hungarian ecoregions to avoid or reduce risks of maladaptation. David has experience in developing community projects with the aim to improve the quality of life of rural populations, and projects in sustainable agriculture. He has collaborated in the development of scientific articles focused on the effect of fragmentation on the phenotypic traits of native species. For David, as an Ecuadorian researcher, it is very important to contribute to the environmental conservation and ecological restoration of the islands. His position as a researcher will significantly help in the development of new and existing projects, in the analysis of data, and publication of scientific articles altogether with the research team of the GV2050 program, aimed at the conservation and restoration of endangered endemic species within the archipelago.
