Born in Saint-lô in 1977 (Normandy, France), Dr. Rudy Lerosey-Aubril has followed undergraduate studies of Natural History at the University of Caen and Rennes,
before he obtained a Master degree (2001) and a Doctor degree (2004) in Palaeontology at the University of Montpellier. After his
doctoral studies, he has been assistant professor (substitute) at the University Montpellier II (2004-2005) and the University of
Clermont-Ferrand (2006-2007). Since 2009, he has been the leader of the section Palaeozoology 1 (‘Aquatic macroarthropods’) at the
Senckenberg Research Institute in Frankfurt am Main (Germany). His main research topics concerns the palaeobiology and palaeoecology
of ancient arthropods, the preservation of soft tissues, and the ontogeny and the late evolutionary history (Late Devonian-Permian)
of trilobites. As a section leader, he is in charge of large collections of fossil invertebrates (>170 000 specimens), including one
of the most important collections of trilobites of the world (>122 000 specimens).
Since 2005, Dr. Lerosey-Aubril has authored or co-authored some twenty articles or book chapters on trilobites and presented many
conferences or posters on these fascinating fossils in scientific meetings, including the 2nd German Trilobite Symposium he has
co-organized in 2011 in at the Senckenberg Museum.
