Dr. Karen Chin – Fantastic article in Nautilus

I love this article by Eliza Strickland about Dr. Karen Chin!

“Researchers who have spent their lives in the few inches of rock that tell the story of life’s near-extinction say that Chin’s worm-burrow paper adds a nice piece of evidence to the emerging picture of how vertebrate animals survived and repopulated the planet.”

I’m not sure of any other local museums, but you can see her work in the dinosaur exhibit at the Boston Museum of Science:
