The FAE Center is proud to announce that Jake Wilson was recently awarded an NSF EAR postdoctoral fellowship! Jake will be working with Tyler Lyson from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and Blair Schoene from Princeton University to study the diversity dynamics of freshwater fish across the Cretaceous/Paleogene boundary. His planned projects will include study of rare articulated fossils of fish living soon before the dinosaurs went extinct, will expand collections in critical boundary sections in Colorado, and will use uranium-lead dating techniques to test the popular hypothesis that the ‘Tanis’ site in North Dakota really preserves the ‘day the dinosaurs died’. Jake will start his position in Colorado in January 2025 after defending his PhD dissertation with FAE. Congratulations, Jake!
