Gero Frisch is a Teaching and Research Fellow in the Chemistry Department at the University of Leicester. He received a PhD degree from the University of Freiburg, Germany, in 2006. With his research in ionometallurgy he explores the link between speciation and chemical behaviour of metal ions in ionic solvents. He uses a combination of spectroscopy and electrochemistry in order to find efficient metal processing techniques.

Mark Purnell’s research interests range across functional morphology, palaeobiology, taphonomy, palaeoecology and taxonomy, with a current focus on taphonomic biases arising from decay and preservation of soft tissue characters, and the use of 3D microtextural analysis of tooth wear for dietary discrimination in vertebrates. He did his PhD at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne on the taxonomy, palaeoecology and biostratigraphy of conodonts from northern Britain, and after postdoctoral work in Toronto, came to Leicester, where he has been ever since.

Hailing from the old privateer town of Dunkerque (where the only palaeontology to do is telling fishermen the difference between a whale's rib and a mammoth's tusk) Laurent Darras started studying palaeontology at the University of Lille 1, under the supervision of Prof. Alain Blieck hand-picking conodonts and brachiopod shells from Ordovician sediments, then discovering the world of jawed vertebrates with fossils of mostly placoderms from the Devonian of the Boulonnais. Now he is finishing a Ph.D about the macro-ecological consequences of grazing and shell-crushing in fishes, while also investigating aspects of the palaeo-ecology of early gnathostomes, all of that under the supervision of Prof. Mark Purnell at the University of Leicester.
