Plenary Speaker

Dr. Nathan Smith

Curator of the Dinosaur Institute, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

Dr. Nathan Smith supervises the Dinosaur Institute staff and conducts research on dinosaur evolution. He holds a B.A. from Augustana College, M.S. from the University of Iowa, and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, and was a professor at Howard University before joining NHM in 2015. Fieldwork has taken Nate to Antarctica, Argentina, China, and the western USA. His research is funded by the National Science Foundation, and focuses on the evolution of Triassic–Jurassic dinosaurs and the use of comparative methods in paleontology. The origin and diversification of dinosaurs represents one of the most poorly known events of vertebrate evolution, and Nate’s work in Ghost Ranch, New Mexico and Antarctica has filled major gaps in our understanding of early dinosaurs and their world. His Antarctic field program is featured in the 3-D IMAX® movie, “Dinosaurs of Antarctica”, and he co-curated the traveling exhibit “Antarctic Dinosaurs”.
