Jesús Marugán Lobón
Paleobiology at the UAM
I am associate Professor (Profesor Contratado Doctor LOU) at the Dptm. of Biology (UAM) and the new CIPb (UAM). As a paleobiologist, my interest in Macroevolution has brought me to tackle multiple facets of animal evolution, including the evolution of birds and now the vertebrate transition to land, largely via digital and mathematical Shape Analytical Tools (Geometric and Traditional Morphometrics, among others). I have now ventured into developing new paths of research in deep-time, paleoecology, taphonomy and complexity science in the amazing Las Hoyas decades-long project.
I teach Paleobiology and Paleozoology Lab in the Degree of Biology at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, as well as specialised courses in shape analysis (Geometric Morphometrics) worldwide.
