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.
