Joseph Botting is a Young International Scientist at the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology. He started working in the Builth Inlier as an undergraduate at Cambridge, and completed his PhD, which was partly on faunas from the area, at the University of Birmingham in 2000. Most of his publications have been on sponges, but he has also worked on echinoderms, worms, trilobites, palaeoecology and several Ordovician Lagerstätten. His research is currently focused on the early evolution of sponges, with forays into exceptionally preserved biotas in China, Morocco, the UK and North America.
