Jordan Mallon excavates a Centrosaurus bonebed.

Jordan's research primarily focuses on plant-eating dinosaurs and takes place both in the field and in museum collections. His research interests have allowed him to foster collaborations in Canada and abroad, and have taken him to scientific institutions across North America, Europe, and China to study other fossils and to learn new techniques. Jordan's fieldwork mainly occurs along the South Saskatchewan River in Alberta. The badlands exposed in this area produce a wealth of fossil material, offering exceptional insights into some of Canada's ancient ecosystems. He has most recently excavated a Chasmosaurus skull and Centrosaurus bonebed.

Principal investigator: Jordan Mallon.
