Liz Freedman Fowler - Paleontology

I am currently a PhD student at the Museum of the Rockies and Department of Earth Sciences at Montana State University, studying the evolution of hadrosaurs in the Late Cretaceous Judith River Formation of Montana. I am also involved in several collaborative research projects, generally providing the analytical methods; I am a big proponent of R. In addition to my research, I'm involved in our ongoing effort to organize and improve access to our paleontology collections. I also organize the summer field crews for the largest paleo field program in the country, coordinating volunteers to assist with our digs in the Morrison, Hell Creek, and Two Medicine Formations of Montana. For information on our digs, and the volunteer application, go here: volunteers.
