Hello there! My name is Chase, and I work as a research associate of paleontology at the Stamford Museum in Stamford, CT. My primary research focus is the paleobiology of the fauna of the Late Cretaceous-age landmass known as Appalachia, which was situated where much of eastern North America now is located today. Not many researchers currently study the flora and fauna of this landmass, and given that the fossil record of Appalachia is relatively poor, the landmass has become somewhat of a forgotten world. For me, this aspect of Appalachia just adds to the fun I have while I do research on it. My goal is to not only further our scientific understanding of this landmass, but to educate the general public about its wondrous plants and animals.


These are the bones of a juvenile Corythosaurus casuarius, a lambeosaurine dinosaur, in our collections. Corythosaurus is very recognizable due to the plate-shaped crest which adorned its head.

I have also had the chance to create several pieces of paleoart for the Stamford Museum as well as a few other educational facilities.
