Hesham M Sallam


Ph.D. (2010) from the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford, UK.
My research interests are broadly in the area of vertebrate paleontological research in Afro-Arabia, and more specifically are aimed at understanding mammalian evolution in Africa, with a particular emphasis on the Afro-Arabian radiations of hystricognathous and anomaluroid rodents. I have been involved in vertebrate paleontological fieldwork in the Late Cretaceous and Paleogene of Egypt, USA, Kenya, and Yemen, and geological and invertebrate paleontological work in the Late Cretaceous and Paleozoic beds of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.
