This week and next we’re pleased to welcome a big group of new contributors to the blog. By way of introduction, I asked each of them to answer a few quick questions about him- or herself. —Jeremy
Who are you? Bryan McLean
Where are you? PhD Candidate at University of New Mexico (Albuquerque, NM) and Predoctoral Fellow at National Museum of Natural History (Washington, DC; through March 2016)
What do you study? I study mammalian phylogeny, morphology, ecology and macroevolution. I spend large amounts of time in both the field and the (molecular) lab. I work in, conduct research in, and am in general an appreciator of natural history museums.
What do you do when you’re not studying it? When not doing those things, I’m often traveling, or exploring the great state of New Mexico, or checking items off my museum life list, or exploring the culinary universe.
