Peter Dodson

Peter Dodson

Peter Dodson holds three degrees in earth sciences: B.Sc. University of Ottawa ’68; M.Sc. University of Alberta ’70; Ph.D. Yale University ’74. He has spent his entire career as a gross anatomist at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, with a secondary appointment in the Dept. of Geology. He is also research associate at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia. He has done extensive fieldwork in the western United States and Canada. In 1981 discovered a new horned dinosaur in Montana, which he described as Avaceratops lammersi in 1986. Since 1995 he has visited China (twice) and India, and have participated in field projects in Madagascar, Egypt and Argentina. Less exotic but also rewarding is a field site in Montana that has recently yielded a new sauropod dinosaur. He is co-editor of The Dinosauria, University of California Press, 1990, author of The Horned Dinosaurs (Princeton University Press, 1996), and several children’s books, including An Alphabet of Dinosaurs (Scholastic 1995). He taught a Templeton course on science and religion at the University of Pennsylvania in 1999, and is currently president of the Philadelphia Center for Religion and Science.
