Professor Thomas Carr is a vertebrate paleontologist and noted expert on tyrannosaurid dinosaurs. His research interests include the integration of ontogenic and phylogenetic data in paleontology, phylogeny and historical biogeography of Laurasian dinosaurs, and the craniofacial anatomy of archosaurs. He has been featured on the National Geographic Channel, and has named four new dinosaur species in peer-reviewed publications such as Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Every summer he leads an annual month-long dinosaur-hunting expedition in southeastern Montana, in which Carthage students are involved.
His degrees are Ph.D. Vertebrate Paleontology, Department of Zoology, University of Toronto; M.Sc. University of Toronto; B.A. York University (York, Ontario). Prof. Carr joined the Carthage faculty in 2004. Read more.
