As an undergraduate at Berkeley, I took a paleontology course from Dr. Kevin Padian, one of the world's leading paleontologists, and it only confirmed the well-established fact that dinosaurs and ancient life are amazingly awesome. Hence, I, along with my good friend Philip Kahn, taught a DeCal (Democratic Education at Cal) class dedicated to ancient life, namely Saurischia (Phil's specialty) and marine reptiles (mine). Below are links to the pdf versions of my lecture slides. The DeCal website can be found here.

|Triassic Marine Reptiles - Ichthyosaurs I|
