Alexandra A.E. van der Geer


Summary

My education is in Palaeontology, Indology (Languages and Cultures of South Asia) and Veterinary Medicine. I started my career with archiving historical archaeological photographs. As a postdoctoral research fellow, I investigated the depiction and role of animals in art in South Asia during the past 4 millenia (ethnozoology). Since the early 2000s, my research focus is on the evolution and extinction of mammals in isolation, including island biogeography and island ethnozoology. Other fields of interests are developmental aspects of the vertebral column and the interface between material culture and the natural environment.
