Emma Dunne


Emma is a paleobiologist interested in understanding the drivers that shaped vertebrate evolution and biodiversity through deep time. Some of her current work includes investigating how past climate change played a role in dinosaur evolution, examining how sampling biases can impact our understanding deep time biodiversity patterns, and performing data-driven analyses of how ethical issues and the legacy of colonialism influence paleontological research.
