I am a new tenure-track Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University in the Department of Marine, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences.

I am interested broadly in the interaction of climate and ecosystems on long timescales, and particularly in how major climate change events can impact biological systems. I primarily study these events and interactions in terrestrial settings, where I use sedimentological, geochemical, paleobotanical, clumped and traditional isotope, and even paleomagnetic methods to describe past environments.

As I start out at NC State, I am broadly looking for students and interested researchers to join my Paleo³ Research Group. If you are interested in working with me, please take a look at this site and information on the MEAS website and feel free to contact me at ehyland@ncsu.edu.

All are welcome to browse my information here on this website, or to contact me directly with questions and comments. Thanks!
