Burpee Museum’s Dinner Keynote speaker is Dr. Steve Brusatte, a paleontologist at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. He is originally from Ottawa, IL, and attended PaleoFest at Burpee while in high school and college. He has written over 100 peer-reviewed papers and seven books (including the textbook Dinosaur Paleobiology), done fieldwork around the world (including with the Burpee Museum while in college), described over 15 new species of dinosaurs, and is the ‘resident palaeontologist’ for the BBC’s Walking With Dinosaurs program. He has a BS from the University of Chicago (where he studied under Paul Sereno), a Master’s from the University of Bristol (where he studied under Mike Benton), and a PhD from Columbia University and the American Museum of Natural History (where he studied under Mark Norell). In April 2018 his first adult pop science book will be published, a narrative history of dinosaur evolution called The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs (William Morrow).
