Kenneth Lacovara

Dean and Professor
My research is focused on the vertebrate paleontology and paleoecology of Cretaceous environments. I direct a field projects in southern-most Patagonia, where we are excavating the remains of massive titanosaurian dinosaurs, and in New Jersey, where we are examining a ~K/Pg mass death assemblage. I’m also a member of field projects in Egypt (mangrove-dwelling dinosaurs) and in China (ancient birds). I supervise six graduate students engaged in research in molecular paleontology, actualistic biomechanics, the biology of sauropod dinosaurs, paleoecology, and sea level change.
