Emanuel Tschopp is a Swiss paleontologist specialising in phylogeny and the evolution of sauropod dinosaurs, specifically from the Late Jurassic of the Morrison Formation in the United States and the Lourinhã Formation in Portugal.
He got his Masters in Paleontology at the University of Zurich in Switzerland in 2008. In 2014, he got his first PhD, and his second in 2014, both from the Universidade Nova de Lisboa working under his professor, Octávio Mateus. He currently works as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Università degli Studi di Torino in Turin (or Torino), Italy.
Emanuel's current research projects are a specimen-based phylogenetic analysis of diplodocid sauropods, a revision of Camarasaurus, and a 3D morphometric analysis of shape change within the vertebral column of sauropods.
Emanuel has been involved in the description or discovery of a number of dinosaur specimens, including the re-classification of Brontosaurus as a separate species from Apatosaurus.
