THE CREW


Adam Schroeder: Field Director/Owner I’m a Petroleum Geologist and Paleontologist currently working in Kansas. I have been working in the Hell Creek Formation of North Dakota and Montana since early 2009.  We can offer experience and knowledge that can only come from years of hard work in the Field. My research focuses on biological extinction and recovery across the K-Pg boundary in the Hell Creek Formation. We are all looking forward to our next paleontology adventure and meeting new participants.                                                                                       Email: hcfossils@gmail.com       Phone: 785-443-0982

Emily Pesek: Field Assistant/leader Emily has just finished her BS in Geology from Winona State University. Her experience in river systems and flood plains is important when analyzing similar sediments of what was once a coastal plain/delta system in the Hell Creek.

James Reed: Field Director/Owner I’m a Geologist currently working in South Dakota. In addition to dinosaurs, i study stratigraphy, (the sequences of rock layers). During my undergrad i did stratigraphic research on ejecta layers from the 2nd largest impact crater on Earth. I'm continuing research in stratigraphy, as well as assisting students with their own on the K-Pg boundary in the Hell Creek Formation.                                                                                           Email: hcfossils@gmail.com   Phone: (507) 313-6954
