About the Society Awards Past Award Winners 2019 Awardees 2019 (Albert E. Wood Award) - Bain Wang  

I was born and raised in China. My interest in paleontology started with the geology courses I took in Albion College, Michigan, where I completed a degree in geological sciences and a senior thesis on Eocene snake vertebrae from the Green River Basin, Wyoming. I received my M.S. in vertebrate paleontology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. My thesis focused on the paleoecology of Neogene rhinoceroses on the Great Plains. I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in the Museum of Paleontology at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. I research the ecology and biogeography of ungulate mammals in both modern and paleo ecosystems, with a focus on the middle Miocene of North America. I use a combination of stable isotopes and geometric morphometrics to reconstruct the dietary ecology, water use, and body size of ungulates from two topographically distinct regions, the Mojave region in California and the central Great Plains, through the middle Miocene episode of global warming. In doing so, I investigate how landscape history affects mammalian biogeography and biodiversity. Aside from mammalian paleoecology, I'm also broadly interested in mammalian functional morphology, geochemistry, and geology.
