Kiersten Formoso is a vertebrate paleontology Ph.D. student at the University of Southern California in the Department of Earth Sciences. Her bachelor's degree is in ecology and evolution from Rutgers University and she did graduate work studying evolutionary patterns of Triassic archosauromorphs at Virginia Tech. Her current research involves applying functional morphology and biomechanics to questions pertaining to major evolutionary transitions and the evolution of swimming locomotion in tetrapods.

Sterling Nesbitt is a sixth year assistant professor and vertebrate paleontologist in the Department of Geosciences at Virginia Tech. Sterling received is bachelor's degree from the University of California at Berkeley and his Ph.D. from Columbia University working closely with the American Museum of Natural History. His research career has involved reconstructing the paleobiology of Triassic-aged vertebrates and their importance to understanding diversity and faunal change through time. Sterling currently heads a research lab that explores the origins of vertebrate diversity and shape, reptile evolution, and how to use recent technologies to study long extinct animals.
