Alexandra A.E. van der Geer
My education is in both Veterinary Medicine and Indology (Languages and Cultures of South Asia). 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). At present, my research focus is on the evolution and extinction of insular mammals, including island biogeography and island ethnozoology, and on developmental aspects of vertebrate evolution.
