LiveScience has covered the research of paleontologist Anthony Fiorillo, an adjunct associate professor in SMU's Roy M. Huffington Department of Earth Sciences. Fiorillo is curator of earth sciences at the Perot Museum of science and natural history. He has collected fossils throughout North America and parts of Asia, but has primarily worked in western Texas and Alaska.
From dinosaurs to sea turtles, and from technical assistance to advisory roles, SMU faculty and students, the SMU Shuler Museum, and the SMU Innovation Gymnasium, team with the nation's new premier museum of nature and science. Fossils on loan by SMU to the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science include those of animals from an ancient sea that once covered Dallas.
The work of SMU researchers Timothy Myers and Anthony Fiorillo was featured online March 19, 2009 on the Discovery Channel. "Mass Dino Graves Suggest Young Banded Together" by Jennifer Viegas highlighted findings being published in the April issue of "Science" magazine. Lead author Timothy Myers, is a Ph.D. graduate student in SMU's Roy M. Huffington Department of Earth Sciences in Dedman College.
