Nicolàs E. Campione, Ph.D.

Nicolás Campione received his B.Sc. from Carleton University in Ottawa, where he completed his Honours Thesis on the specialized necks of horned dinosaurs. Nic then completed a Masters degree at University of Toronto in 2008 under the supervision of Robert Reisz, where he worked on the anatomy of varanopids, Permian basal synapsids. Nic completed his Ph.D. in the Evans Lab at the University of Toronto in 2013. His work investigated body size scaling and evolution in living and extinct animals, and tested Cope’s Rule in the evolution of body size in ornithopod dinosaurs.
