Nicholas R. Longrich

Senior Lecturer in Evolutionary Biology and Paleontology, University of Bath

I'm an evolutionary biologist and paleontologist from Kodiak, Alaska. I'm interested in how the world evolved to be the way it is. I study mass extinction, adaptive radiation, dinosaurs, pterosaurs, and mosasaurs, among other things.
