Lorenzo Lustri

Research interest

I obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Lausanne in March 2023. My research focuses on the study of the extensive collection of synziphosurans from the Fezouata biota (Morocco). Using my background in evolutionary biology I aim at reconstructing the phylogenetic relationship, paleoecology and paleobiology of this group to elucidate the evolutionary history of Chelicerata.
