NI Xijun Professor nixijun@ivpp.ac.cn
PEI Shuwen Professor

  Paleoanthropology, Paleolithic Archaeology, Geoarchaeology, Quaternary Geology. Specialized in the study on the archaeology of human evolution, site formation processes, lithic technology, environmental reconstruction, and the difference and formation of human adapted behaviors between west and east of early hominins during Pleistocene.  

QIU Zhanxiang Professor
SHANG Qinghua Professor shangqinghua@ivpp.ac.cn
STIDHAM Thomas Professor
      I am an integrative biologist and avian paleontologist who mainly studies the origin and diversification of modern or crown group birds. My interests include systematics, paleobiology, biogeography, and anatomy, and I have a particular interest in the role of climate change and intercontinental dispersals of birds through the Cenozoic.
TONG Haowen Professor
Quaternary mammalian fossils from prehistoric sites: their evolution and paleoenvironmental implications, mainly focusing on pachyderms; relationships between humans and the mammalian faunas.
Vikas Kumar

I am an evolutionary computational biologist with boinformatics skills and interested in the field of paleogenomics, population genomics, phylogenomics, taxonomy, speciation, molecular evolution, selection, bioinformatics and transcriptomics.

WANG Min Professor
 I’m curious about various aspects of the evolution of birds during the Mesozoic Era, a critical phase when birds split from the dinosaur branch and evolved the bauplan of modern birds. In doing so, I’m collecting comparative anatomical, histological and ontogenetic data to infer the taxonomy, phylogeny, ontogeny and ecology of Mesozoic birds. Also, Cenozoic bird fossils are my favorite if they are not that boring.

My research interests focus on the evolution of fossil amphibians and small reptiles from China, on their morphological evolution and ontogenetic development (particularly osteological), systematics and phylogeny, and paleobiogeographic reconstruction. Current research is mainly on the well-preserved and mostly articulated frogs, salamanders, and lizards of the Early Cretaceous Jehol Biota and of associated earlier horizons (e.g. Jurassic Daohugou Bed). The fossil localities are mainly in northeastern China (Liaoning, Hebei Provinces and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region). Other on-going work includes lizards and temnospondyl amphibians from the Jurassic of Xinjiang Autonomous Region and frogs from Cenozoic localities in eastern and southern China.
