Dr Caitlin Symeis a palaeontologist who recently finished her PhD at The University of Queensland, 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 PhD productivity tips and insights and life post-PhD.
