Adam Manning is a student at the University of Birmingham, studying palaeontology. He has always been fascinated by the subject, with a keen interest in vertebrate palaeontology and taphonomy. Adam wants to go on to do further research in palaeontology as a PhD student, using methods like biomechanics, geomorphometric analysis and/or geochemical and microscopic analysis to reconstruct what fossil organisms looked like and how they behaved and interacted with their environment.
He hopes that people who read the articles on this blog find them just as interesting and entertaining as he finds creating them!
