Some of you out there may be wondering who I am.
I’m Rob Gay, and I'm a science teacher at
Current research includes manus movement in Dilophosaurus, functional morphology of the tail of Coelophysis, and a few other things I’m trying to develop. I am also the sponsor for the Middle School science club, and I am trying to get them involved in actual paleo research beginning in the 2010-2011 school year.
In my free time I restore tractors, hike the desert, look for fossils and Anasazi ruins, and generally have a good time.
