Assistant professor, New York Institute of Technology

Simone Hoffmann's research centers on how key mammalian features such as large brain size, a keen sense of smell, and high-frequency hearing evolved.

Her research combines data from the paleontological record with information drawn from living mammals utilizing high-resolution CT scanning, soft tissue staining, and 3-D reconstruction software.

She contributes to the discovery of new fossils and is actively involved in fieldwork on the under explored southern hemisphere. Her most recent field involvement has been with the Mahajanga Basin project in the Late Cretaceous of Madagascar.
