Elena Cuesta was born in the Canary Island (Spain). She is a geologist by the Complutense University of Madrid and PhD in Biology by the Autonomous University of Madrid. She has been working during her postdoctoral stage at the Fukui Prefectural University (Japan) and Paleontological Museum of Munich (Germany). Her research is focused in the Paleobiology of theropod dinosaurs, studying their anatomy and evolutionary relationships.

Gastón A. Martini
My name is Gastón A. Martini, alias Tato. I am an Argentinian biologist (from UNRC), doing a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences (at UNC) in my home country. My place of work is located in southern Argentina (CIEMEP-CONICET). I am currently studying a group of glyptodonts from the Santa Cruz Formation (Early Miocene) of Patagonia (Argentina). My research is focused on anatomical, taxonomic, phylogenetic, and paleobiology aspects of them with an emphasis on cranial characters. Last but not least, I am a plant and dog lover and a human of two puppies (Franky and Rufi).

My name is Diana Osipova. I obtained my Master’s in Kyiv (Ukraine), and had started my research career as a Juniour Research Scientist at Institute of Zoology (Ukraine). Starting from that moment I have been interested in and mostly focusing on the study of the evolution of hinge in Bivalvia, and its abnormalities. For the present moment, I continue my project in Academia Sinica (Taiwan), and work with fossil Mollusca specimens, mostly specializing on Pliocene-Pleistocene taxa.
