Ángela Delgado Buscalioni

Profesora Titular, Departamento de Biología, Unidad de Paleontología, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid

Angela Delgado Buscalioni is specialist in Vertebrate Palaeontology and Professor at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in the Department of Biology, since 1998. She obtained the Ph. D. in Biological Science in 1986. Her scientific profile concerns mainly Systematics and Morphology. She has been mentor in eight Doctoral Theses. Her core contributions deal with the evolutionary patterns of morphological transformations involved in the macroevolutionary events of reptiles and birds. Some of her approaches have been considered pioneering contributions on Theoretical Morphology and Morphological Integration. During 30 years she has been teaching curses related with evolutionary thinking, the development of Systematics, and the history of Biology. Convinced of the importance of popularization, she has written books on Evolution and a Guide of Spanish Paleontological Museums. Her interest on Morphology has been accompanied with a personal curiosity on Art. To such extent, two contributions could be highlighted: “Modularity at the boundary between Art and Science” (in Modularity, MIT Press, 2005), and a set of visual and musical performances on Modularity and on The Genesis of the Form.
