Susana Bargo is a vertebrate paleontologist at the Museo de la Plata (Argentina), and a researcher of the Comisión de Investigaciones Científicas de la Provincia de Buenos Aires. She graduated and obtained her PhD from the Universidad Nacional de La Plata. Her research to date has focused on the paleobiology of South American fossil mammals, mainly xenarthrans, through the application of functional morphology, biomechanics and morphometrics. She has authored about 50 scientific papers and book chapters, and edited one book. She was the Editor in charge of Vertebrates for Ameghiniana, winning an award in 2008 for a publication in that journal. Since 2003, she has participated in numerous field seasons to Miocene outcrops of Patagonia, Argentina.
