Matthew A Brown

Matthew A Brown

Lecturer, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Jackson School of Geosciences
+1 512 232 5515

Expertise: Brown's primary research goal is to develop a more thorough understanding of how past and future treatments affect specimens as sources of data, and the impact these treatments have on the science of paleontology. This approach examines the interplay of historic and current practices in the field, laboratory, and collections, and how the scientific community interprets these results in the literature. He also studies how such events foster an evolution of best practices, policy, and law, and he advocates for fossils on public lands. Brown is an active member of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology and the Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections, and is the founder of the Association for Materials and Methods in Paleontology.
