Fieldwork

 

I have conducted fieldwork in several formations across the world, but my main research focuses on the Early Cretaceous of North America. If you are an undergraduate or graduate student interested in joining one of my field crews, please contact me.

Early cretaceous of North America

I have conducted vertebrate paleontology fieldwork in the Cloverly, Turney Ranch, and Lakota Formations of western North America, results of which were published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, PalaeoecologyJournal of Systematic Palaeontology, and Historical Biology

 

Fieldwork in the Cloverly Formation is ongoing: a monographic revision of its age was recently submitted for publication (see our conference abstract from our session at last years' GSA meeting), and further articles are in preparation based on new specimens and species we have recovered from the formation.

Late Jurassic Of North America

From 2013–2017 I was the PI of the Hanksville-Burpee Quarry, one of the most extensive dinosaur deposits in the western United States. Over 1000 bones of a number of adolescent dinosaurs have been found at the quarry since 2008, when it was named one of National Geographic's Top Ten Dinosaur & Fossil finds that year.

Other fieldwork

I have assisted or collaborated on a number of field crews, including work in the Cretaceous of Madagascar, Eocene of western North America, and Pleistocene of New York.
