Paleontology Collections Manger
Having a love for the natural sciences ever since childhood, Mr. Torres knew he would be involved in the creatures that either do or once did call Earth home. He obtained a Bachelors of Science degree from Florida Atlantic University in 2018 and, after a period of time working in a biological laboratory setting, decided to return to Florida Atlantic University to obtain a Masters of Science in Geology in order to further pursue his reignited interest in Paleontology. While still working as for the university as a Laboratory Technician, Luis is still working on his Masters of Science degree and possibly obtain a PhD in the future. His interests include all paleontological life, but with a special interest in the Cenozoic and the Ice Age faunas of Florida.
