Much of our research incorporates fossils that we have collected ourselves. Lab members have collected fossils in Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, and South America. Currently, regular fieldwork is in the Triassic of the Chinle Formation and the Jurassic of the Morrison Formation (in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University and the American Museum of Natural History).
