Research Interests

Ecosystem biogeochemistry; ecohydrology; human dimensions of global change


Ph.D. 2009 Stanford University


Eve-Lyn Hinckley’s academic interests focus on quantifying how interactions among biogeochemical, hydrological, and ecological processes affect nutrient cycling at multiple scales.  She explores these interactions in a range of settings—including those where human influence is remote and where it is immediate. Eve’s foundation in conducting process-based studies at plot-to-regional scales has informed her more recent involvement in collaborative efforts to design and use network resources for addressing questions at broad scales.  In all of her research endeavors, Eve enjoys collaborating with colleagues and practitioners who bring different perspectives to the research and are interested in working together to incorporate new scientific results into land management decisions. 

In the classroom, Eve emphasizes student engagement through lively discussions ranging from the details of biogeochemical cycles to historical and present day environmental issues.  She is also firmly committed to increase hands-on research opportunities for undergraduates on campus and at CU’s long-term research sites in the Colorado Front Range.

Prospective Graduate Students

I am very interested in working with highly motivated, creative graduate students.  If you think that my research group would be a good fit for you, please contact me prior to applying to the Environmental Studies Program to discuss your interests via an in-person meeting, phone call, or Skype.  When you email me, please send:

1) CV

2) A brief description of your research interests and why you want to pursue graduate work in the Environmental Studies Program.

3) A brief description of any relevant experience or skills (field, lab).

4) Transcript

5) Copies or links to any peer-reviewed publications (e.g., manuscripts, conference proceedings, poster PDFs).

For Undergraduate Students

If you are interested in conducting an honors thesis with me, or would like to work with the Terrestrial Biogeochemistry Research Group, please send an email to discuss available opportunities.
