Our Members

I am a palaeontologist and geologist on the faculty of the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh. I study the anatomy, genealogy, and evolution of dinosaurs and other extinct animals, with the aim of understanding how evolution works over long time scales and how the earth changes over time. I am also a keen communicator of science: I have written several books for kids and adults, appear often on television and radio, and consult regularly with the press.
