I am an anthropological archaeologist interested in the interactions between ancient people and changing environments, transformations in settlement and land-use strategies, and landscapes of memory. I specialize in archaeological applications of geomatics including geographic information science (GIS) and remote sensing with a focus on archaeological geophysics. My current research is focused on two important regions: the Near East and the mound-building societies of the Eastern Woodlands of North America. I also contribute to active research in Iraqi Kurdistan, maintain a continuing interest in southeast Arabia, and consult on a number of other international projects including one here in Germany where I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Tübingen.
