James Campbell, M.Sc., has recently published in the Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences. He independently authored A reassessment of the horned dinosaur Judiceratops tigris (Ornithischia: Ceratopsidae) from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) of Montana, USA

Mr. Campbell is a two-time graduate of Carleton University. In 2011, he graduated from our program in Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoecology. He then went on to do his Master's in our department under the supervision of Adjunct Research Professor Michael Ryan and Professor Claudia Schröder-Adams. His Master's thesis is entitled: A re-evaluation of the Chasmosaurine ceratopsid Chasmosaurus (Dinosauria: Ornithischia) from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) Dinosaur Park Formation of western Canada. 

Last month James became a Ph.D. student at the University of Calgary in the Department of Biological Sciences. He is studying under the supervision of Dr. Jason Anderson. His area of study is the distribution of large marine reptiles (plesiosaurs) that inhabited the extensive Western Interior Seaway of North America, during the Cretaceous Period.
