Cary grew up in rural central Virginia, and received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Earth Sciences with an emphasis in Paleontology at Montana State University under famed dinosaur paleontologist Dr. Jack Horner. Currently, during the off season, Cary is pursuing his Ph.D. at the University of Toronto under Dr. David Evans. Cary has had several published papers ranging from the first burrowing dinosaur (Oryctodromeus cubicularis), to modern bovine vertebral anatomy, to fossil manatees in ancient Egyptian catacombs; yet the majority and his area of specialization are dedicated to sauropod dinosaur biomechanics and growth. Cary described and named a new sauropod dinosaur from Montana (Rugocaudia cooneyi), and his work on deciphering sauropod growth is pioneering the way we understand the life histories of these gigantic animals. Cary is excited to be apart of the Great Plains Dinosaur Museum team, and he hopes to study these wonderful fossils and show off the amazing treasures that Malta has to offer.
