Lorenzo Lustri

Research interest

I am a PhD student at the University of Lausanne. I am studying the extensive collection of Synziphosurans from the Fezouata biota (Morocco). Using my background in evolutionary biology the aim of my study is to reconstruct the phylogenetic relationship, paleoecology and paleobiology of this group to elucidate evolutionary history of Chelicerata.
