Eric Lund in the field.

Have you ever wanted the opportunity to talk directly with diverse professionals in the STEAM field? Now is your chance! In this program, we’ll get an inside look at the lives and careers of guest speakers from a variety of backgrounds, whose stories may not fit the mold of an “average” professional in their field! Join us to learn about the barriers, successes and unique experiences they’ve had on their journeys.

This month, we’ll learn more about Paleontology with Eric Lund.

Eric Lund is the SECU DinoLab Manager at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences (NCMNS). Eric comes to the Museum from Ohio University where he was the Paleontology Lab Coordinator for the O’Connor Lab and is currently finishing his doctoral work under Dr. O’Connor there. His doctoral work focuses on the evolutionary morphology and systematics of ceratopsian (horned) dinosaurs. Eric was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, where his love of all things fossils and outdoors began.

As the SECU DinoLab Manager, Eric oversees the daily activities of the DinoLab, which include fossil preparation and conservation, and public engagement. His favorite aspects of his job are getting to work with all the fossils, not just the dinosaurs, and interacting with and educating Museum visitors about paleontology and science in general. Eric is currently working on the preparation and conservation of the Dueling Dinosaurs fossil.

Professional Previews will take place on Zoom. We recommend this program for middle school and up, but all ages are welcome.
