My research focuses mainly on tetrapods from the Age of Dinosaurs; I have a particular interest in dinosaurs, mosasaurs and fossil trackways. I currently work on T. rex and Triceratops from North America, and on mosasaurs from Angola.

“Trying to bring back fossils to life.”

I am currently working on:

  • the Late Cretaceous mosasaur fauna of Angola
  • Triceratops from Wyoming, USA
  • Tyrannosaurus rex from Montana, USA
  • and -closer to home- fossils from the Triassic of Winterswijk and the Cretaceous of Maastricht.
