Outreach

Wirking with kids Speaking to a group

Interested in dinosaurs, paleontology, fossil collection, or vertebrate evolution?  Please feel free to contact me.  I would be happy to give presentations about my research or other general topics related to paleontology to audiences of all backgrounds.

Throughout my academic career I have always worked to make science accessible to the public through presentations about paleontology and dinosaurs. I take particular pleasure in working with kids,teaching them about science and the wonders of the natural world.
