Dr. Novikov is the Deputy Director of the Paleontological
His specialty is the Permian -Triassic boundary leaning more to the Triassic.
He works with reptile-like amphibians and amphibian-like reptiles.
Unfortunately too much of his time is now given to administration instead of science
and he risks being subsumed by amphibian-like bureaucrats.
It is through his untiring efforts and faith in the unproven Mr. Pruitt
that the Russian Dinosaur Exposition came to fruition.
Here is Dr. Novikov with an unnamed species he discovered while working in America.
Here is Dr. Novikov examining another species he discovered in Mr. Pruitt's lake.
