Massimo Delfino is Associate Professor of Palaeontology and Palaeoecology at the University of Turin (Italy). The focus of his research concerns aspects of palaeontology, evolutionary morphology, systematics, phylogeny and biogeography of the amphibians and reptiles. The main research lines deal with the contribution of fossils to the phylogeny of crocodilians and to the evolution of the herpetofaunas of Europe and the Mediterranean area.
