About Benjamin J Burger

My research interests are in paleontology, paleoclimate, and stratigraphy. I’m located at the Uintah Basin – Vernal Campus and oversee the geology lab, which includes thin-section, rock saws, fossil preparation, petrographic microscope labs, 3D printing, and teaching collections. I teach Planet Earth (Earth System Science), Earth through Time (Historical Geology), Natural History of Dinosaurs, Advance Stratigraphy, Sedimentary Petrology, Invertebrate Paleontology and Paleobotany, and Vertebrate Paleontology. As service, I mentor graduate students in the AEG-MS program at regional USU campuses, and undergraduate students in the Uintah Basin in northeastern Utah.
