Cyrus is a paleontologist who has dug up vertebrates and invertebrates throughout the Rocky Mountains. Cyrus earned an MS from Fort Hays State University in Kansas working on the growth rates of basal mosasaurids, studying the changes in bone microstructure as the animals aged. While in Kansas he worked at the Sternberg Museum of Natural History, focusing on synching database records with handwritten ledgers, updating outdated preservation methods, and photographing specimens. Afterwards he received a scholarship from the National Council for Preservation Education and spent six months at the Tate Museum in Casper, WY updating their collections. His interests at Harvard are learning how a large collection is managed and learning new and exciting methods of fossil preservation.
