Louise Longridge is an invertebrate paleontologist with a specific interest in paleobiology. She has a B.Sc. in Ecology, obtained her Ph.D. in Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of British Columbia in 2007 and is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the same department. Her Ph.D. research was based on the Early Jurassic ammonite fauna from the terranes of British Columbia. It involved studying faunal turnovers around the end-Triassic mass extinction event, ammonite systematics and aspects of biogeography as well as several areas of paleobiology. These included the study of ammonite phragmocone asymmetries and sexual dimorphism, which is prevalent in many Early Jurassic ammonites. Louise is currently examining how ammonite morphospace changed over the end-Triassic mass extinction interval.
