Tag: David Button
David Button is a palaeontologist based at North Carolina State University and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. Previously, he worked on vertebrate palaeobiogeograhy at the University of Birmingham, before which completed his PhD thesis on cranial biomechanics of sauropod and ‘prosauropod’ dinosaurs at the University of Bristol. He gained his undergraduate and master’s degrees at the University of Leicester, were he studied the phylogeny of pterosaurs. His research utilises methods from a variety of disciplines, including soft-tissue reconstruction, biomechanics, biogeography and evolutionary modelling, to investigate macroevolutionary and ecological signals in the vertebrate fossil record. He is particularly interested in archosaur biology and the evolution of herbivory in vertebrates.
