What we do
From asking questions to disseminating results, the Paleobiology & Geobiology Research Group at Virginia Tech explores the breadth of the fossil record using both field-based tools and cutting-edge analytical techniques. Common themes in our research include the origins of major clades, phylogenetic reconstruction, faunal change, extinction, environmental changes, and taphonomic processes.
Our current projects range from understanding the Neoproterozoic fossil record and its paleoenvironmental context to exploring the early evolutionary history of dinosaurs and their relatives. On the following pages are more details about our projects, resources, and the people involved. Welcome!
