Daniel Medina Stacey

Daniel Medina-Stacey received his Licenciatura (5-year undergraduate degree) in Biology from the Complutense University of Madrid in 2011. He spent the academic year 2008/09 at the University of Strasbourg as an ERASMUS student where he completed a one semester research project, and in 2010 he did a summer internship supported by the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) at the Institute of Evolutionary 
Biology in Barcelona.

After completing his undergraduate degree, Daniel completed the MSc in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology of the University of Manchester in the academic year 2011/2012, supported by a studentship from the Caja Madrid Foundation.

In 2012 Daniel started his PhD project with Prof Micklefield, co-supervised by Dr Anil Day, on the development of riboswitch expression tools for use in plant biotechnology.

Daniel is a native speaker of both English and Spanish, and can handle himself reasonably well in French.  In his spare time he enjoys reading, cooking, eating the stuff he cooked, spending a bit too long on Reddit for his own good, and tinkering with his computer and those of people foolish enough to let him.
