Dean is a young palaeontologist from Doncaster, England. He has been interested and involved in all things palaeontology since a very young age volunteering and working alongside museums and specialists since his early teens. He has taken part in several palaeontological projects across the world.
As a palaeontological consultant, Dean works on a freelance contract basis, visiting museum collections, identifying specimens, creating exhibits, cataloguing, and researching material available. Additionally, Dean holds lectures, fossil events and presentations in museums & institutes, schools, clubs and more; he also leads fossil hunting trips to the Whitby coastline and interacts with the media.
Dean is an honorary research associate at Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery in South Yorkshire, England. In 2008 he rediscovered the museums highly important and old palaeontology collection (100+ years). Work conducted has included collection research, exhibition creation and much more. He has also spent many months working in the USA in both Wyoming and Montana; this has included extensive work with the Wyoming Dinosaur Center (www.wyodino.org). Amongst this, work has also been conducted in France and Germany. All of the projects Dean has been able to work with have allowed him to thoroughly experience several key areas of palaeontology. Something that Dean loves to do is express his enthusiasm and knowledge for his subject, and researches several areas in palaeontology. From this he publishes work(s) into palaeontology related magazines and scientific journals, including peer, and non-peer reviewed publications. A recent publication is the book: Fossils of the Whitby Coast. Through such works as those discussed, the media (including newspapers, radio and TV) have expressed interest in following Dean’s adventures and have watched his career unfold. Dean is frequently in contact with some of the world’s leading palaeontologists discussing research and collaborating on projects.
Dean, will always look to reply to as many messages has he can. But may not always be able to reply to every message as he's busy with palaeontological work.
