Raef Minwer-Barakat is an experienced researcher in several fields of Vertebrate Paleontology. His PhD (University of Granada, Spain) was focused on the study of Neogene small mammals (rodents and insectivores) from southern Spain. In 2008 he got a position in the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (Barcelona, Spain), changing his main research line to the study of the early primates (Omomyiformes, Adapiformes, Plesiadapiformes) from the Spanish Paleogene. In addition, he continues the research on Cenozoic rodents, including systematic and biostratigraphic studies.

M.Sc. (2008) in Palaeontology at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Universitat de Barcelona; Since 2008 Predoctoral researcher (Ph.D student) at Institut Català de Paleontologia (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), Paleoprimatology and Human Paleontology Department. Ph.D. in Biodiversity (2013); Postdoctoral Associate in Duke University (Durham, NC, USA) from September 2013 until December 2014. Human Gross Anatomy and Advanced Anatomy instructor in Duke University from September to December 2014. Postdoctoral researcher at Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris since January 2015.

The main focus of her research during her Ph.D. were the dental-based systematics and taxonomy of the Eocene primates from the Iberian Peninsula, as well as inferences on paleobiology. After the completion of her Ph.D. she has continued her systematics work on fossil teeth, and she has also taken up a line of investigation regarding undescribed postcranials attributable to the fossil primates whose teeth she studied during her PhD, in order to infer their locomotor behavior and to assess the phylogenetic information contained in this aspect of their anatomy.
