About

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. To date, my research has focused on two important regions: the Near East with projects in Turkey and Iraqi Kurdistan as well as mound-building societies of the Eastern Woodlands of North America. I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Tübingen where I am directing landscape-level remote sensing surveys of the Swabian Alb of western Germany.I also contribute to active research in Egypt, Italy, and maintain a continuing interest in southeast Arabia.
