Dr Dyke Gareth
I am a vertebrate palaeontologist/evolutionary biologist with particular interest in the evolution of birds within theropod dinosaurs. I am interested in the transitions in avian evolution before, and after, the end Cretaceous mass extinction as well as in dinosaur reproduction and vertebrate flight.
I am currently a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Debrecen (2016-present), and was the recipient (2014-2015) of an International Fellowship from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
Previously, I was based at the University of Southampton (2011-2015, Associate Professor), University College Dublin (2002-2011, Senior Lecturer), and the American Museum of Natural History (Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow; 2000-2002). I am a Research Associate of the AMNH (2002-) and the National Museum of Ireland (2011-), and was a Senior Research Fellow at Queens University Belfast (2010-2011).
Since 2004, I have been the Editor-in-Chief of the Taylor & Francis journal Historical Biology. In this role, I have led the journal from zero copy (2004), to first impact factor (2010), and to an IF of 2.059 and a ranking 9/54 in the paleobiology category (2016).Válogatott publikációk:
