Naturally Speaking: Digital Dinosaurs

Date/Time

May 17, 2018
06:00 PM until 07:00 PM

Description

National Geographic Emerging Explorer Dr. Ryan Carney uses innovative technologies to study and teach about dinosaurs and diseases.

A professor of digital science at the University of South Florida, he’s pioneered a course called “Digital Dinosaurs.” Dr. Carney’s research brings extinct creatures “back to life” by reconstructing their anatomy, motion, and even original coloration, and by visualizing them using virtual and augmented reality.

With an emphasis on the iconic “missing link,” Archaeopteryx, he explores one of the biggest questions in paleontology: How did dinosaurs evolve into flying birds?

Dr. Carney's research has been published in top-tier journals such as Nature, featured in the New York Times and popular science books.

"Digital Dinosaurs" is part of the Virginia Living Museum's "Naturally Speaking" lecture series, sponsored by Virginia Health Services.
