About Aaron LeBlanc
I am a palaeontologist and histologist specializing on the evolution and development of teeth. I use ground and paraffin sectioning techniques to compare dental development and anatomy across extant and fossil species. I also specialize in scanning electron microscopy, micro- and nano-CT scanning, and elemental imaging of tooth and bone samples.
Most of my work has been on the evolution and development of reptile teeth, but I also work on mammals, extinct synapsids, early tetrapods, and fish.
