Spencer Lucas received a B.A. from the University of New Mexico in 1976, and M. S. (1989) and Ph.D. (1984) degrees from Yale University. His research interests have primarily focused on vertebrate biostratigraphy, particularly of the Mesozoic. Lucas is particularly interested in the application of vertebrate fossils to problems of the geologic timescale. He has conducted field research primarily in the western United States, but also in China, Kazakstan, Georgia, Mexico, Costa Rica and Nicaragua.

Lucas began fieldwork on the Carboniferous-Permian transition in New Mexico during the late 1990s. This research has focused on diverse aspects of the stratigraphy, biostratigraphy and paleontology of the marine and nonmarine strata that crop out across the state.

Since 1988, Lucas has been Curator of Geology and Paleontology at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.
