Matthew Mihlbachler’s primary career interest is the evolutionary paleobiology of Cenozoic mammals. He has conducted field research in Asia, Africa, and throughout North America. His research is focused on the systematics, dietary paleoecology, biogeography, functional morphology, and paleopolulation demography of perissodactyls and other large mammals, with particular interest in understanding the role of climate change in biotic evolution. Presently, Mihlbachler is focused on understanding dental wear as a proxy for animal-environment interaction to test hypotheses about climate and morphological adaptations. Mihlbachler has extensively revised our understanding of the systematics and evolution of the Brontotheriidae, the most diverse family of megaherbivores during Eocene time.
