Andrea Bair caught the paleontology bug after working with J. Alan Holman while an undergraduate student at Michigan State University, where she completed a BS in Geology. She then completed a PhD working with Mike Voorhies at the University of Nebraska, primarily on understanding dental variation in fossil lagomorphs and North American biostratigraphy and biochronology. Andrea then spent three months as Visiting Assistant Professor at Northwestern University in X'ian, China, for her first overseas travel experience. Andrea currently works as a Research Associate in the Department of Geological Sciences for the Science Education Initiative at the University of Colorado, where she has added expertise in scientific teaching and education pedagogy to her repertoire, while maintaining research interests in Great Plains Cenozoic geology and paleontology and the evolution of lagomorphs.
