Undergraduate research

Research and publishing

I primarily investigate how large carnivorous dinosaurs caught, dispatched, and ate their prey. The rex Lab at UW La Crosse currently has 10 undergraduates and two graduate students who research crocodilian and tyrannosaur feeding, computer modeling of animal mass properties, leg and foot stresses of human motion, carnivore ecology, and herbivore feeding. Prospective inquiries are welcome. More information and publication links are at the lab web site (URL below).
