Mathew Knauss received both his B.S. in Geology (Paleobiology Specialization) and M.S. in Geology at Bowling Green State University (Bowling Green, Ohio, USA). He is currently a Ph.D. student in the Hughes Laboratory at the University of California, Riverside. His research interests focus on developmental plasticity, intraspecific variability, and functional morphology of both ammonoids and trilobites. His current research involves quantifying morphological and ontogenetic variability in scaphitid ammonoids of the Late Cretaceous Western Interior Sea Way, and understanding the evolution of trilobite enrollment, specifically focusing on the microstructure and biomechanics of the exoskeleton and the differences in coaptative devices that aid in enrollment.

Peg (Margaret M.) Yacobucci received her A.B. in Geophysical Sciences from the University of Chicago, and her Ph.D. in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Harvard University. She is currently Associate Professor of Geology at Bowling Green State University. Her research centers on understanding the evolution of fossil cephalopods, especially Cretaceous ammonoids, through analyses of phylogenetic history, morphological and developmental plasticity, and paleobiogeography. She currently serves as the Paleontological Society’s Education and Outreach Coordinator (2010-2016), and as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Paleontology and Palaios.
