Axelle Gardin - PhD Student in paleontology

Specialist in ancient continental ecosystems, my goal is to put extinct species back into their environment and relate the evolution of fauna to that of the environment. My research is carried out in an interdisciplinary approach integrating studies of functional anatomy, bone growth and isotopic geochemistry.
