Dr. Carballido acquired his PhD studying and analyzing the evolution and anatomy of sauropod dinosaurs. He obtained his doctoral degree in 2012, conducting his research at the MEF Museum in Patagonia, where he is still working. For the last 10 years he conducted and participated in several field trips in Patagonia, looking for new evidence on past life, especially in Cretaceous rocks. He is particularly interested in understanding the great diversity of these giant plant-eating dinosaurs that proliferated in Patagonia during the dinosaur era. He is currently studying some new species of sauropods from South America, as well as species from other places such as Germany and the United States.
