I am primarily interested in using geochemical archaeology to link paleoenvironmental and archaeological data sets to better understand climate/human relationships. I currently work in Jordan and the United States and have also worked in Vietnam and Egypt. I hope to bring an archaeological perspective to conversations on climate change to show how humans have responded to environmental stressors in the past and how we have an unprecedented opportunity to fight climate change in a way that our ancestors did not have before.
