Research and publishing

I primarily investigate how large carnivorous dinosaurs caught and fed upon their prey. The rex Lab at UW La Crosse currently has 10 undergraduates and 3 accepted graduate students who research raptor and crocodilian feeding, dinosaur muscle function, leg and foot stresses of human motion, carnivore ecology, and bird ecology. Prospective inquiries are welcome. More information and publication links are at the lab web site (URL below).
