Our Museum Scientist, Dr. David Lovelace, manages the Fossil Preparation Lab as well as the museum’s research programs. Our museum research highlights the many stories associated with paleontology that go beyond what the fossils alone can tell us. Dave’s work focuses on the Triassic of the Rocky Mountain West, with a strong emphasis on the paleoenvironments and paleoecology of the Chugwater Group of Wyoming. He is also interested in taphonomic processes, developmental malformations in the fossil record, and vertebrate ichnology.
