Dr. Bastien Mennecart mainly works on mammal anatomy and evolution, but his broad interest cover the entire vertebrate palaeontology. Since 2005, he contributes to and organizes field work around the world. He got his PhD at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) in 2012 on phylogeny and evolution of ruminants. As postdoc at the Natural History Museum in Paris, Munich, Vienna, and Basel, he studied the connections between Asia and Europe during the Cainozoic. Since 2015, he also works on projects to define the phylogeny of the extent and extinct ruminant based on 3D models of the inner ear region.
