MONDEJAR FERNANDEZ Jorge
Jorge Mondéjar Fernández is a paleontologist, research assistant at the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle and professor of Life and Earth Sciences in Paris. He is interested in the origin of the first tetrapods and the evolution of other Devonian aquatic vertebrate groups. He has worked on fossils from all over the world (Latin America, Russia, Morocco, etc.) that illustrate the great diversity of Devonian vertebrates before they leave the water. His current research focuses on describing several new species using new virtual imaging and phylogenetic reconstruction technologies to better understand their anatomy and kinship relationships.
