Jon Tennant

Fledgling PhD student
London, UK
Geologist, ecologist, taxonomist, vagrant of sorts, scientist, eater of food. Doing a Palaeo-PhD in tetrapod macroevolution and mass extinctions, because science is awesome. I blog for the European Geosciences Union at and tweet voraciously as @protohedgehog. Palaeontology PhD student, researching terrestrial vertebrate macroevolution. Also dabbles in science policy and science communication.
