Curry Rogers is a vertebrate paleontologist most interested in studying dinosaur
evolution and paleobiology. Her current research focuses on the evolutionary history of
Titanosauria - the latest surviving and perhaps most diverse lineage of long-necked
sauropod dinosaurs. Titanosauria includes over 40 species that had a near-global
distribution during the Late Cretaceous. With regard to paleobiology, she is most
interested in understanding dinosaur life history, and utilizes bone histology to explore
and reconstruct growth patterns in extinct dinosaurs, living birds, and other
vertebrates. To these ends, she also conducts field research in Montana, Madagascar, and
Zimbabwe. She is jointly appointed in the Biology Department at Macalester, and teaches a
selection of courses that relate to her research interests, including: (1) Dinosaurs
(GEOL 101), (2) Biodiversity and Evolution (BIOL 270), (3) Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy
(BIOL 394), and (4) Vertebrate Paleobiology (GEOL 394). 

Curry Rogers have been teaching at Macalester since 1997.
