Research Interests

Dr. Ballard’s research assesses ontogenetic growth and intra-specific variation in extinct tetrapods primarily through large-sample long-bone paleohistology, with a focus on non-avian dinosaurs. She also examines the intra-skeletal ontogenetic histology of extant tetrapods to improve understanding of bone tissue microstructures for use as a foundation in paleohistological interpretations.
