"I was always interested in nature. I spent almost all my time outside as a kid, exploring and interacting with natural objects. I am still intrigued with the idea that the complexity of life all around us was produced by a suite of natural laws, that those laws can be studied by exploring the trajectory of life over time, and that there is still so much to learn and discover." – Lindsay Zanno
"To a large degree, paleontology is an exploratory science, so much of what I do involves discovering and describing new species... But I am also fascinated by big picture patterns in evolution and enjoy asking questions about how ecology shapes lineages through time." – Lindsay Zanno
"It's cliché, but I was a kid fascinated with dinosaurs. Like most, without opportunities to engage, my interest waned. I was pursuing an undergraduate degree in pre-med when my mother bought me the book From Lucy To Language by Donald Johanson. It resonated so powerfully with me that I read every book in my local library on human evolution. When I ran out, I up and moved Albuquerque to study paleoanthropology. There, collaborating with folks at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, the dinosaur spark rekindled." – Lindsay Zanno
