Dr. Steve Salisbury speaks on Australian Dinosaurs at the November DVPS Meeting



The Delaware Valley Paleontological Society
(In conjunction with the regular monthly meeting)
Presents: Dr. Steve Salisbury
Who will speak on:
"Inside Paleontology in the Outback Down Under: New discoveries of dinosaurs and other vertebrates from the mid-Cretaceous Winton Formation of central-western Queensland, Australia"


Steve Salisbury is a Lecturer in the School of Integrative Biology at The University of Queensland, and the Rea Postdoctoral Fellow at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.
Steve studied biology and geology as an undergraduate at the University of Sydney, receiving the Edgeworth David Award for Paleontology in 1993. He then moved to the University of New South Wales, where he completed a 1st Class Honours thesis on fossil crocodilians from Murgon, south-eastern Queensland, under the supervision of Professor Mike Archer, Dean of Science at the University of New South Wales. Subsequently, while still affiliated with the University of New South Wales, Steve went to Germany and the UK to complete a PhD on crocodilian locomotor evolution under Dr Eberhard 'Dino' Frey.
He returned to Australia in 2000 to pursue a life-long dream of searching for Australian dinosaurs, a dream that was fulfilled in part during 2001 with his involvement in the discovery of Australia's largest dinosaur, Elliot the sauropod, whose study forms a core component of his current research program.
