I am an Assistant Professor of Geology at Utah State University’s Uintah Basin Campus located in Vernal Utah, which offers a Master’s Degree Program in Geoscience. I teach stratigraphy and paleontology. My research incorporates detailed study of the skeletal and dental anatomy of fossil mammals, as well as their stratigraphic and systematic relationships. I conduct fieldwork in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming looking for fossil mammals. I host my own video blog, Bestiapilosus “The Hairy Beast” on Youtube and write about geology and paleontology.
