Alejandra Gandolfo, associate professor in the Plant Biology Section of the School of Integrative Plant Science, is profiled in Daring to Dig: Women in American Paleontology, an exhibit from the Museum of the Earth and the Paleontological Research Institution (PRI) that highlights women paleontologists past and present.

You can visit the in-person exhibit through fall, or view the online version.

The exhibit “represents the history of women working in paleontology from the 1600s through to contemporary times. It profiles some of the most influential women paleontologists in the U.S., past and present, while looking at the broader social contexts in which the lived. The exhibit allows visitors to explore the lives of women paleontologists, learn about the prejudices they faced and still face today, and discover some of their greatest accomplishments.”
