Eric Simon made his studies and Ph. D thesis (Biology) at the Free University of Brussels. His works concern the study of fossils and extant brachiopod species. They deal with ontogeny, evolution, ecology and palaeo-ecology, morphological analyses and taxonomic problems. Improving the perception of biological characteristics in the field of paleontology is for him an important concern.
