You do not want to miss this Dinosaur Celebration podcast episode with my guest, NAT GEO explorer, and scientist, Nizar Ibrahim, as he fills us in on his exciting research and discoveries in the wonderful world of dinosaurs. Nizar and I talk about his work and travels as part of National Geographic’s exploration team and the ongoing DinoMAYnia Celebration of Dinosaurs that kicked off on NAT GEO on May 18.
Nizar’s mission is to share his passion for science with audiences, young and old, around the world through speaking tours with National Geographic Speakers Bureau, and through exhibits, educational videos, and books. His research and discoveries from the many paleontological expeditions he has led to Africa’s Sahara desert have been featured in a variety of publications from National Geographic, Nature, and Science to The Wall Street Journal and Discover Magazine.
Nizar is a vertebrate paleontologist and comparative anatomist with a background in bio- and geosciences. He has a Ph.D. in vertebrate paleontology and is an Assitant Professor of Biology at the University of Detroit Mercy (USA), a research associate with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History (USA), and a visiting researcher with the University of Portsmouth (UK). His current research interests include vertebrate morphology and evolution, Mesozoic chronostratigraphy, and bioinformatics.
You can see his discoveries at work at NAT GEO, a fun place for families to learn and create together with activities and books galore.
