Norman MacLeod
Emeritus Editor

Norman MacLeod started out as a child. No one really knows where or why and he can't remember. It just happened. He received as B.Sc. in Geology from the University of Missouri, and M.Sc. in paleontology from Southern Methodist University in Texas (where that Ewing girl went to school), and a Ph.D. in micropaleontology from the University of Texas at Dallas. After completing his Ph.D. in 1986 he was awarded a fellowship from the Michigan Society of Fellows for research in evolutionary micropaleontology and morphometrics at the University of Michigan. In 1989 he moved to Princeton University where he continued these studies and began looking into stratigraphical, biogeographical, and phylogenetic aspects of foraminiferal responses to mass extinction events. In 1993 he moved to The Natural History Museum in London where he is currently Keeper of Palaeontology. Since moving to London MacLeod has added projects in paleontological informatics and electronic communications to his long-standing research interests.
