Anna Pauline or Pau is MNH's Curator for Small Mammals and currently an currently an Assistant Professor in Zoology at the Animal Biology Division of the Institute of Biological Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences, UPLB.

Dr. de Guia is PhD graduate in Environmental Resources from Hokkaido University, Graduate School of Agriculture, Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan where for her dissertation, identified conservation units in animal populations based on phenotypic variation and neutral genetic variation: the gray-sided vole (Clethrionomys rufocanus) in Hokkaido, Japan, as a model species. She garnered her MS in Wildlife Studies and BS Zoology degrees from the University of the Philippines Los Banos.
