About me

This section contains personal information.

I am a geologist with a doctorate in vertebrate paleontology. In the past, I have been working not only as an excavation manager, but also as researcher, scientific consultant, museum worker, exhibition planner, editor, and author.

I have been excavating dinosaurs on six continents and under most variable conditions. My special research topics are Jurassic vertebrates, gastroliths, vertebrate taphonomy, dinosaur trackways, and bone diagenesis.

I work as the director of the Natural History Museum Bamberg in Bavaria, Germany.
