How do we go beyond bones to bring extinct dinosaurs to life? What did dinosaurs sound or look like when they roamed the Earth?


Julia Clarke (’02 PhD, Geology & Geophysics) uses new tools to study the evolution of dinosaurs—including birds. Learn how international field teams in Antarctica, South America, and Asia led by Clarke are bringing together data on living animals to ask new questions of the fossil record.


Clarke's presentation and Q&A will be moderated by Yale alumna and producer of WNPR's Where We Live, Carmen Baskauf ('17).
