Pedro is a brown-eyed, dark-haired and bearded man, wearing a dark gray T-shirt. He is smiling and sitting in front of a blackboard, on which the names of two crocodylomorph species can be read. In front of him, on a wooden table, there are three skulls of fossil crocodylomorphs

I am a paleontologist interested in the evolution of vertebrates, currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of São Paulo, in Brazil. My research focuses on the systematics and macroevolution of different tetrapod groups, mainly reptiles. I did my undergrad and MSc in my native Brazil, also at the University of São Paulo. I obtained my PhD from the University of Birmingham (UK), with a research project focused on documenting macroevolutionary patterns of crocodylians and their extinct relatives. This was followed by two postdocs, one in the US and another one in Brazil, also working on the evolution of crocodylians. Besides that, I am also on the editorial board of the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, as their sole Phylogenetics Editor. On the Pal(a)eoPERCS Committee, my responsibilities include video editing of the recorded talks, as well as maintaining our YouTube channel.
