Alberta's Backyard Dinosaurs
A new specimen of amber from Myanmar preserves the tiny tail of feathered dinosaur.
Nerd Nite Wedding
Duck-bills, butt-heads, and deceptive thieves, meet the dinosaurs that once roamed Alberta in this 2016 summer series with CBC Radio.
A Dinosaur Named Hannah
In the summer of 2016, we tied the knot in an untraditional ceremonial seminar series featuring Dr. Philip J. Currie and Dr. Robert T. Bakker. The event was hosted by Nerd Nite Edmonton.
The Boneyard with Georges St. Pierre
It’s traditional that, when a new dinosaur specimen is found, its discoverer gets to give it a nickname. In 2015, I found a new ceratopsian skull and associated skeleton. Its nickname: Hannah – after my dog.
Everything Worth Knowing
A new History show follows the martial-arts champ and me hunting for super predators and dinosaur eggs in Patagonia.
The Quick and the Deadly
Discover Magazine asked me to tell them the basics of dinosaur evolution and to give them a whirlwind tour of the dinosaur family tree.
I Know Dino Podcast
In a study of predatory dinosaur limb proportions, I look to see what groups were the most adapted for speed.
10 Fastest Predatory Dinosaurs
I sit down for a chat with the podcast I Know Dino. We shoot the breeze on comparative anatomy, recent fieldwork finds, fossil stomach contents, and dinosaur video games.
If carnivorous dinosaurs could have an Olympic sprint team, here are the beasts that I think would make the cut.
My Origin Story
A short interview with the folks at Mind Fuel about the “Cool Career” of paleontology.
When I was 2 ½, my father read me a story called “The Big Little Dinosaur”, and that was that
The Paleon Museum, in Glenrock Wyoming, will always have a special place in my heart. So too will this tyrannosaur trackway.
Romeo & Juliet
To keep their big sickle foot-claw sharp, Velociraptor and its relatives walked with one toe raised. Thanks to this unusual trait, a new trackway has been identified as the trail of a raptor.
Bristles Before Down
Preserved together in the ancient sands of Mongolia, a pair or oviraptorosaurs were given the poetic nickname of “Romeo and Juliet”. But that title might be more apt than was first thought.
Dino Hunt Canada
Before any dinosaur could fly, coverings of simple feathers helped to insulate body heat. But before that, the very first feathers might have acted like whiskers.
In 2014, the History Canada Channel filmed the series Dino Hunt Canada, which followed major digs across Canada, including Dr. Currie’s sites in Grande Prairie and Dinosaur Provincial Park.
Discovering Dinosaurs Exhibit
With no armor, no horns, and much shorter legs than their tyrannosaur predators, hadrosaurs would seem to have been sitting ducks. But I think the secret to the group’s survival may have been their adaptations for endurance.
In 2014, I curated the Discovering Dinosaurs exhibit for the University of Alberta museums.
My research was featured in – and on the cover of – the University of Alberta’s New Trail magazine.
A new specimen of the four-winged dinosaur Microraptor includes fossil stomach contents. What was this little predator’s last meal? Fish!
