Kenneth Lacovara is the founding Dean of the School of Earth and Environment at Rowan University and Director of Edelman Fossil Park. He has unearthed some of the largest dinosaurs ever to walk our planet, including the super-massive Dreadnoughtus. Professor Lacovara uses 3D imaging, 3D printing, robotics, and medical modeling techniques to help to shift our perspective of giant herbivorous dinosaurs from their historic portrayal as hapless lumbering prey to that of fearsome, hulking, hyper-efficient eating machines that deserve our awe and respect. He has appeared in numerous television documentaries and his discoveries have landed him three times in Discover magazine’s 100 Top Science Stories of the year and in Time’s Top Stories of 2014. Dr. Lacovara was named by Men’s Journal as one of “The Next Generation of Explorers,” and he is an elected fellow of the prestigious Explorers Club in New York. He is also the author of “Why Dinosaurs Matter.”
