Thodoris completed his B.Sc. in Geology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and his M.Sc. in Evolution and Systematics at the University of Alberta. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Evolutionary Biology at the Paleontological Institute and Museum of the University of Zurich. His research interests lie in the field of paleoichthyology, and more specifically on the early evolutionary history, paleobiology and interrelationships of ray-fin fishes. Other research interests relate to the evolution and systematics of cartilaginous fishes, as well as the evolution and biogeography of the African freshwater ichthyofauna. He has conducted fieldwork in different countries in Europe, North Africa and North America.

Richard Hofmann is a postdoctoral researcher at the Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin. He studied Geology/Palaeontology at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg where he received his Diploma in 2008. From 2009 to 2013, Richard joined the Group of Hugo Bucher at the Palaeontological Institute and Museum of the University of Zurich (Switzerland) to carry out his PhD-research on the palaeoecology of benthic post-extinction faunas of the Early Triassic. After a 2-year postdoc-period in Zurich which led him to study Permian palaeoecology, he works in Berlin since 2015. Richard is interested in the palaeoecology and diversity patterns during diversification and extinction events as well as the palaeobiology of selected fossil groups, most notably bivalves, trace fossils, brachiopods and trilobites. His current focus lies on early Palaeozoic and he prefers a specimen- and field-based approach to palaeontological questions.
