Anjali Goswami is a lecturer in palaeobiology in the Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment and the Department of Earth Sciences at University College London. Her research focuses on large-scale patterns of evolution and development, integrating data from embryos to fossils to understand influences on morphological evolution in mammals. Her interest in carnivoran evolution was first established in the years prior to graduate school when she worked as an intern and then researcher in tiger conservation at Bandhavgarh National Park, India. In between countless hours measuring skulls in dark museum basements, Anjali has conducted palaeontological fieldwork in the Western U.S.,…    

Anthony Friscia's research covers small carnivores, both extant and extinct. He is particularly interested in questions about ecomorphology and community structure. He has done field work in Utah, Pakistan, Egypt, and Kenya. He is a member of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, the American Society of Mammalogists, the Paleontological Society, Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology, and the National Science Teachers Association. He is currently faculty at the University of California - Los Angeles, where he has won a number of teaching awards for his work teaching evolution to non-science majors and human anatomy, and where he also works to shape their science general education…
