JULIA CLARKE is a paleontologist and evolutionary biologist at the University of Texas at Austin. She studies birds and other theropod dinosaurs to better understand major transitions in the history of life. She is particularly interested in how structures in living animals developed and how novel ways of moving—such as avian flight and wing-propelled diving—evolved.
