INVESTIGATING PETRIFICATION ON A GLOBAL SCALE
A professor of vertebrate palaeontology at Utrecht University and researcher at Leiden’s award-winning Naturalis Biodiversity Center since 2013, Prof. Dr Anne Schulp has made his passion for the Age of Dinosaurs his life’s work. The content of his research focuses on dinosaurs, mosasaurs and fossil trackways, with peer-reviewed journals published every year since 1999.
Obtaining his masters’ in Earth Sciences at Vrije Universiteit in 1998, Anne began his career as a curator at the Natuurhistorisch Museum Maastricht, before securing his PhD at the same university, in 2006. His work focused on mosasaurs from the Type Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous).
Over the last two decades, he has worked on projects across the globe, including the excavation of one of the most complete and best-preserved skeletons of a Tyrannosaurus Rex ever found in Montana, which is now a much-prized centrepiece of the museum, as well as a herd of Triceratops, discovered in Wyoming.
