Torsten Scheyer is currently a postdoctoral fellow and junior lecturer at the Paläontologisches Institut und Museum, Universität Zürich. He is mainly interested in the evolutionary morphology und palaeobiology of vertebrates, the development of skeletal tissues and the microstructures of bone, as well as the ecological adaptations of extant and extinct vertebrates. A current focus of his work is based on understanding the relationships of the marine placodont reptiles from the Triassic by integrating anatomical, bone microstructural and developmental data sets.
