Research Summary

My research explores variation in human behavior within the framework of behavioral ecology. Currently, I am using geographic and spatial modeling techniques to investigate the nexus of climate, conflict, and human migration in the prehistory of the American Southwest. In addition, I am working to advance data management and data science in archaeology.
