Paleontologist Paul Sereno
“I see paleontology as adventure with a purpose. How else to describe a science that allows you to romp in remote corners of the globe, resurrecting gargantuan creatures that have never been seen? And the trick to big fossil finds? You’ve got to be able to go where no one has gone before.” — Paul Sereno
Having discovered more than two dozen new species of dinosaurs on five continents, Sereno has been called a modern-day Indiana Jones. A professor at the University of Chicago, Sereno has written several articles for National Geographic and scholarly journals, and is the subject of many documentaries.
