Some congratulations are in order for my fellow grad student Phil Bell, who successfully defended his PhD thesis today!
Phil’s thesis is titled “Systematics and palaeobiology of the crested hadrosaurine Saurolophus, from Canada and Mongolia.” He’s been working for the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum (previously the River of Death and Discovery Dinosaur Museum) since last fall.
You can read more about his work on Saurolophus in these papers; I’m sure there will be several more to come:
