He is also the volunteer section editor for paleontology at PLOS ONE (although any opinions expressed here are his own). Find him on Twitter: @andyfarke
Shaena Montanari recently received her Ph.D. from the Comparative Biology program at the Richard Gilder Graduate School (American Museum of Natural History). She is primarily interested in ecology, life histories, and diets of animals in deep time and the modern day. Shaena uses methods such as stable isotope analysis, phylogenetics, and microscopy to examine faunal response to evolving environments and climates.
Sarah Werning recently earned her Ph.D. in Integrative Biology from the University of California, Berkeley. She is now an NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stony Brook University. Sarah’s research uses bone histology–the microscopic study of thin slices of bone tissue–to study the relationship between bone, ecology, growth rate, and metabolism in living and extinct vertebrates.
