Carolina S Gutstein
Carolina completed her Ph.D. at the Universidad de Chile, Santiago in 2012. Her dissertation research looked at the morphological and acoustic differences between river and marine dolphins, especially those in South America. She is broadly interested in the functional morphology and phylogeny of toothed whales (Odontoceti), and the paleoenvironments of Neogene coastal systems, including the Bahia Inglesa Formation in the Atacama Region of Chile. Carolina graduated from Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, in 2003, and she has a Master's degree in geosciences and paleontology from Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, both in Brazil.
She is also committed to promoting paleontology in Chile, being a part of the board at the Asociación Chilena de Paleontologia, from 2010 to 2013. (Photo: C. Loch Silva)
