Dr. Eva Koppelhus is Assistant Professor and Curator of Paleobotany and Palynology at The University of Alberta.
Dr. Eva Koppelhus’s interest in paleobotany (the study of fossil plants) and palynology (the study of fossilized spores and pollen) goes way back into the Cretaceous Period (135 to 64 million years ago). Many of my research projects have been related to dinosaur sites in Alberta, Antarctica, Argentina and Asia. The two research disciplines compliment each other, and together allow us to interpret ancient environments.
As a palynologist educated at the University of Aarhus in Denmark, Dr. Koppelhus has worked for more than ten years at the Geological Surveys of Denmark and Greenland, where her research focused on floras of the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous geological periods.
Dr. Koppelhus’s work with Dr. Currie has taken her to all corners of the world, including Argentina, Australia, China, Europe, Indonesia, Japan, Madagascar, Mongolia, New Zealand, South Korea, South Africa, and the U.S.
