Russell D.C. Bicknell is a recent PhD graduate of the University of New England in Australia. While he has explored aspects of the Cambrian Explosion, and continues to uncover patterns of predation from this period of time, he has dedicated a large portion of his research to horseshoe crabs (fossil and live). He is particularly passionate about finding ways to combine traditional systematic palaeontology with geometric morphometric analyses to uncover evolutionary patterns exhibited by the group. He is also interested in using these data and patterns to support the conservation of these iconic chelicerates.
