Geobiology and Geoanthropology

Geobiology relies on analysis of fossils in their geologic, and thus historical and environmental contexts to test hypotheses about the history of life. 

Geoarchaeology and geoanthropology focus on the spatial, temporal, and environmental context of humans in the most recent phases of Earth history.

Our current research is focused on coral reefs, vertebrate evolution, the evolution of early humans, early angiosperms, and Cretaceous marine faunas. Our projects include the study of evolutionary paleontology, paleoecology, paleoclimates, phylogeny, functional morphology, taphonomy, biostratigraphy, and biogeography.
