Russell Dean Christopher Bicknell

Post-doctoral researcher in Palaeobiology, University of New England

Russell D.C. Bicknell is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of New England, Australia. Prior to this position he was a PhD student at the University of New England and moved over to Australia from New Zealand to pursue his passion for invertebrate palaeontology and uncovering patterns within the fossil record. While interested in an array of palaeontological topics, he has dedicated a large portion of his research thus far to horseshoe crabs and related chelicerate groups. He is particularly motivated to combine traditional systematic palaeontology with geometric morphometric analyses; an approach that often highlights interesting evolutionary stories.
