My research portfolio is broad in scope and continuing to expand. As you'll see, though, almost everything I do utilizes quantitative data analysis, cutting-edge methods, and often high-performance computing. My projects also almost always revolve around "human-environment interaction" in a broad sense.
Currently I'm a postdoc in the Department of Archaeology at Simon Fraser University---though, I'm about to take up a new postdoc position at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology in Jenax, Germany. My primary research focuses on the long-term impacts of climate change on humans and I use the archaeological record as a source for case studies. A significant part of this research involves developing advanced statistical tools that will allow archaeologists to test hypotheses about human–environment interaction using the palaeoenvironmental and archaeological data. I have an MA in Anthropology from Trent University in Ontario and a BA in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology from the University of Saskatchewan. I have been involved in academic fieldwork in Saskatchewan, Turkey, and Belize; and I spent two years working in Cultural Resource Management in Northeastern BC.
