Angelica Torices-Hernandez


Angelica is from Spain and has dedicated much of her research to theropod teeth and dinosaur trackways. At the Complutense University of Madrid, she received a degree in Geology with specialization in paleontology, followed by a MSc in 2002 and PhD in Paleontology in 2007. Some of this doctoral research was conducted in conjunction with the Currie Lab and, in 2011, Angelica became a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Alberta. As of 2016, she continued her postdoctoral studies and became Academic Director of the Paleontology Chair at University of La Rioja in Spain, with a focus on preservation and research of trackways and ichnofossils.
