Esther is visiting the Natural History Museum of London, under the supervision of Dr Zerina Johanson, for the next three months. She is going to collaborate with Zerina’s group in the understanding of holocephan dentition and evolution.
Dr. Oleg A. Lebedev from the Paleontological Institute of Moscow (Russian Academy of Sciences), was visiting the University of Valencia to discuss future collaborations between both institutions on paleozoic vertebrates.
For the next two weeks, Hector and Carlos will attend the IX Congreso Latinoamericano de Paleontologia held in Lima (Peru). After the conference we will do some fieldwork on the Palaeozoic strata of southern Peru looking for early vertebrates from the Ordovician to the Devonian.
For the next two weeks, Carlos will be visiting Mr. Jinyuan Huang researcher of the Chengdu Institue of Geology and Mineral Resources. During his stay, Carlos will be working at several Triassic localities in Central and South China looking for well preserved conodont clusters, and perhaps even the conodont animal.
For two weeks, Humberto and Carlos are visiting the Oxford University Museum to work with Dr. Imran Rahman in Computed Fluid Dynamics. As a part of Humberto’s PhD thesis we want to explore the hydrodynamic performance of highly disparitate agnathan headshields.
Humberto is just leaving Spain to join the research group directed by Professor Philip Donoghue in Bristol (UK). He is going to get some training in Computed Fluid Dynamics and Tomography during the next three months. We wish you the best of luck!
