I teach a minicourse focusing on dinosaur paleobiology (Dinosaurs and Other Failure, EARTH 103) and an introductory historical biology course (Evolution and Extinction, EARTH 125). In each, the fossil record provides the basis for exploring the history of the earth and life on earth. I also co-teach a summer field course (Ecosystem Science in the Rockies, EARTH 450) at Camp Davis near Jackson, WY and on an irregular basis a course focusing on methods (Analytical Paleontology, EARTH 510/511). Like other paleontology faculty, I contribute regularly to Friday noon paleontology seminars (Fall and Winter terms: GS 536). Finally, I supervise undergraduate student research, mostly through UROP, and serve as a Ph.D. advisor.
