Biography
Brian Beatty, Ph.D., explores different areas of science, and is particularly interested in zoology and paleontology. A vertebrate paleontologist, his research involves evolution, paleontology, anatomy, and paleopathology with marine mammals such as whales, dolphins, and manatees; hoofed mammals such as camels, deer, and extinct forms; and early mammals.

Beatty serves as the managing editor of PalArch’s Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology. His blog, The Aquatic Amniote, shares news and insights about marine mammals, marine reptiles, and the evolution of aquatic amniotes. Beatty also shares information on Twitter, and has created multiple Facebook groups based on his interests.

Beatty joined NYIT in 2006, after previous positions at universities and museums around the country, including the University of Chicago, University of Kansas Natural History Museum & Biodiversity Research Center, the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., and the Florida Museum of Natural History.

In addition to teaching at NYIT, he is a guest professor at Capital Normal University in China, research associate at the Virginia Museum of Natural History, and continues research for the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and the University of Kansas Natural History Museum & Biodiversity Research Center.

Beatty received his Ph.D. in ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Kansas, master’s degree in anatomy at Howard University, and bachelor’s degree in zoology with a minor in geology at the University of Florida.
