Kenneth Lacovara, Explorer/Paleontologist/Author

Dr. Kenneth Lacovara has unearthed some of the largest dinosaurs ever to walk the earth, including the massive 65-ton Dreadnoughtus. He is a recipient of The Explorers Club Medal, the highest honor in exploration, previously awarded to pioneers such as Neil Armstrong, Jane Goodall, and Sir Edmund Hillary. His TED talk has been viewed by over two million people, and his book, Why Dinosaurs Matter, published by Simon & Schuster, is a winner of the Nautilus Book Prize.

Lacovara’s discoveries have landed him numerous times on the front page of The New York Times, three times in Discover magazine’s 100 Top Science Stories of the Year, and in Time’s Top Stories of the Year. He was named by Men’s Journal as one of “The Next Generation of Explorers,” and he has appeared in over 13 television documentaries. Currently, he is researching the extinction of the dinosaurs.

He is the Founding Dean of the School of Earth & Environment at Rowan University, and is Executive Director of the Edelman Fossil Park, where he and his team are building a $75M museum designed to connect people to deep time, the contingencies of natural history, and the fragility of our planet.
