Adriana Oliver is a Ph.D. in Palaeontology by the University Complutense of Madrid (Spain). Her studies deal with the systematics, taxonomy, morphometry, paleoecology and evolution of rodents, both fossils (cricetids, ctenodactylids, glirids, sciurids) and extant groups (phyllotine cricetids), applying different analytical techniques (dental microwear analysis, classical and geometric morphometric analysis, confocal microscopy and CT-scan). She has focused on the Oligocene and Miocene rodents from Europe and Asia and on the biostratigraphy of those basins.
