Felix Augustin deals with the evolution of terrestrial vertebrates in the Mesozoic era: he studies the taxonomy, palaeoecology and phylogeny of turtles, crocodiles, dinosaurs, pterosaurs and mammals. In his dissertation project, he focuses on the Upper Cretaceous vertebrate fauna of the Hateg Basin in Romania. Augustin has already published 14 articles in renowned journals as first author. In addition to his ongoing involvement in theory, he has also gained research experience in the field. He plans to use the prize money to finance trips to Romania to examine as yet undescribed items from the collections in Cluj-Napoca and at the University of Bucharest and present his findings at specialist conferences.
