Anatomy and Paleontology

I am a comparative anatomist by training, and my main research areas are vertebrate paleontology and human anatomy. Along with my coauthor and colleague Mike Taylor, I blog about paleontology and anatomy at Sauropod Vertebra Picture of the Week, https://svpow.com/.

In my spare time I enjoy stargazing, and I write the monthly Binocular Highlights column and the occasional feature article for Sky & Telescope magazine.
