What does a palaeontology student do on a typical work day? And what about a non-typical day? Head over to UQ's new blog, Small Change, and find out! Hint: it involves a little bit of reading papers, a little bit of lab work, with a sprinkle of lunch-time Twitter perusal.
Dr Caitlin Symeis a palaeontologist studying the taphonomy (preservation state) of fossil non-avian dinosaurs, crocodiles and fish from the Winton Formation, Queensland, Australia. Think forensic science or CSI for fossils, and you're on the right track!
Posts on this blog focus mainly on vertebrate palaeontology and taphonomy, as well early career researcher (ERC) productivity tips and insights.
