The initial radiation of mammals after the end Cretaceous mass extinction included several now completely extinct orders that looked like nothing alive today. I am investigating how the unusual morphology, and specifically the spine, of these animals functioned, using virtual 3D models of their fossils.
Anne also designed and developed a YouTube channel, The Virtual Paleontologist:
"Welcome to The Virtual Paleontologist! These video tutorials are designed to introduce paleontology researchers, educators, and enthusiasts to the world of 3D data. I focus on laying the groundwork with videos on different scan methods, data types, and techniques and then cover specific uses of free, open source software."
