Léo Botton-Divet

The research laboratory for morphology and history of modern design under the leadership of John Nyakatura at Humboldt-Universität in Berlin is strengthened by the joining of Einstein International Postdoctoral Fellow Léo Botton-Divet. Based in Paris at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle and the Centre national de la recherche scientifique, he is holding a PhD in functional morphology and will be part of the DFG-funded Cluster of Excellence “Image Knowledge Gestaltung”. Supervised by John Nyakatura, the junior research group creates a bridge between biology, art history and pictorial history.
