VERTEBRATE PALEONTOLOGY AND ICHNOFOSSILS RESEARCH
Curator of Paleontology
Karen Chin's research interests are in Mesozoic paleoecology. She is particularly interested in what coprolites (fossil feces) can tell us about the paleobiology of dinosaurs and other vertebrates, and about trophic interactions in ancient ecosystems. Karen has an active field program in the Rocky Mountain region.
Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology
Jaelyn Eberle is a Canadian vertebrate paleontologist specializing in fossil mammals. Her research focuses on mammalian evolution across the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary (that infamous boundary when dinosaurs went extinct) and Arctic vertebrate evolution, paleoclimate, and paleobiogeography. Jaelyn has active field programs in the Rocky Mountain region and the Arctic.
Collections Manager of Paleontology
Toni Culver manages the vertebrate, trace, and eggshell collections. Her expertise in paleontology includes Eocene to Miocene fossil mammals and trace fossils in the Rocky Mountain region. Her field research is also in the Rocky Mountain region.
