FIELD WORK

SOUTHWESTERN NORTH DAKOTA &

SOUTHERN UTAH

Hell Creek Formation (65ma)

Southwestern North Dakota

​​
I participate in summer field work outside of Marmarth, ND in association with Tyler Lyson and the Marmarth Research Foundation (MRF). Fossil collection occurs in the Hell Creek Formation (Latest Cretaceous; Maastrichtian)
, and past excavations have included: baenid and trionychid turtles, Triceratops, a new species of oviraptor, two pachycephalosaurs, and a mosasaur (from the near by Pierre Shale Formation).

Southeastern Utah

Early Cretaceous

 

The field component of the computational paleophysiology course that I taught in 2012, and 2013 involved working with the Utah State Paleontologist James Kirkland in the Cedar Mountain Formation.
