Research Summary

My research addresses the relationships between Quaternary mammals, environmental change, and human-environment interactions, with an emphasis on the African record. To explore these relationships, I study vertebrate remains from paleontological and archaeological sites. My approach to the fossil record draws on paleoecological and zooarchaeological techniques.
