Dionysia Liakopoulou is a Ph.D. candidate on Palaeontology at the University of Athens, Greece. Her studies deal with the systematics, morphometry, phylogeny, palaeobiology and evolution of the fossil Greek ungulates. She studies the functional morphology of fossil material both externally, using geometric morphometrics, and internally, using CT imaging. She has focused on petrosal anatomy of endemic species and currently her interests include Lat Cenozoic ungulate collections.
