About the Society Awards Past Award Winners 2015 Awardees 2015 (Taylor & Francis Award) 1st Place - Simone Hoffman

Simone finished her undergraduate degree in Geology at the University of Bonn, Germany, in 2010. While her diploma thesis was on Miocene pangolins from Southern Germany, working with Thomas Martin at various Jurassic and Cretaceous field sites in China, Russia and Argentina, sparked her interested in more ancient Mesozoic Mammals. In 2010, she pursuit her PhD at Stony Brook University supervised by Erik Seiffert and David Krause. A year later the cranium of Vintana, a Cretaceous mammal from Madagascar, was discovered. Simone was involved in the description of the cranium and sensory evolution of this bizarre mammal as part of last years multiauthored SVP Memoir. She is acknowledged today for her contribution on the endocranium of Vintana co-authored by Patrick O’Connor, Chris Kirk, John Wible and David Krause, titled: “Endocranial and inner ear morphology of Vintana sertichi (Mammalia, Gondwanatheria) from the Late Cretaceous of Madagascar.” She continues working on Cretaceous mammals of Madagascar for her dissertation in describing the skeleton of another mammal from the Mahajanga Basin.
