About Kristi Curry Rogers

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.
