Hello, scholar social! Here's my #introduction
I'm here from the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology dept at the University of Toronto and the Palaeobiology dept at the Royal Ontario Museum.
I'm a PhD Candidate studying growth and life history in extant and extinct cats, using both observational data (collected by others) and data from the growth record preserved in bone (collected by me)! See below for what a fossil Smilodon bone looks like under the microscope 👀
@billmania fair point - I suppose the second category may have been better worded "interests/passions outside my professional academic work"
@dantheclamman as we say in our lab: gotta cut 'em all! I'm excited to share many more pretty bones with y'all
@ashinonyx it was my favorite part TAing vert paleo, watching the students' minds get blown by the trippy light show :)
@ashinonyx welcome here! Great to have you and your interests 🙂
I hope you have an enjoyable time on the fediverse. Quite a few RStats people around here, keep an eye on the hashtag (you can pin hashtags on the desktop website), and we also hang out on Matrix if you are interested: https://matrix.to/#/#rlang:matrix.org
