My research focuses on the study of mammalian faunas during past intervals of climate change, as well as the recovery and evolution of mammals following a mass extinction event.  I study mammalian fossils to: (1) date the rocks (biostratigraphy); (2) determine the phylogeny and evolutionary relationships of mammalian groups; (3) provide insight into mammalian paleobiology,-ecology, and -biogeography as well as Paleogene climate through combined analyses of stable isotopes and paleontology; and (4) assess the recovery and evolutionary radiation of mammals following dinosaur extinction at the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) boundary. My research is field intensive, and my field sites range throughout the Rocky Mountain Region and the Canadian Arctic. Fortunately, some of the best K-Pg boundary sites are found locally in Colorado's Denver Basin , and the University of Colorado Museum’s Fossil Vertebrate Collection houses the largest collection of fossil mammals from this region.

Samples of my research include: 

Eberle and Eberth, 2015 Eocene Arctic Perissodactyls

Kim, Eberle et al., 2014 Arctic Paleosalinity

Eberle et al., 2014 Eocene mammals of British Columbia

Eberle and Greenwood, 2012 Eocene Arctic fauna and flora

Eberle et al., 2009 Eocene mammals lived year-round in Arctic
