Paige dePolo is a visiting researcher at the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas studying the ichthyosaur Shonisaurus popularis (our state fossil). A northern Nevada native, Paige graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2016 and recently finished a Masters degree in Palaeontology and Geobiology at the University of Edinburgh studying dinosaur footprints on the Isle of Skye. She will be headed back to Scotland this fall to begin PhD. studies on the mammals that lived right after the dinosaurs went extinct. When Paige isn’t spending time thoroughly puzzled by fossils, she enjoys reading science fiction novels, riding her bicycle, and sleeping in sunbeams.
