About Arjan Mann

I am a Vertebrate Paleontologist and currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian, National Museum of Natural History in Washington D. C.

I use the fossil record to study the evolutionary origins of amniotes (animals with a cleidoic egg, including reptiles and mammals). My current research focuses on the locality of Mazon Creek, Illinois, and the early reptile fossils that are found there, however, I often wander all the directions of paleobiology, including the origins of the mammal lineage!
