About

I am an anthropological archaeologist who will be conducting research in pre-Hispanic Andean South America. I am interested in sequential site formation patterns in the central Andean mountain range. My goal for research is to macroscopically analyze site formations to understand how groups of people recognized their positions as inhabitants of the natural landscapes surrounding them. I want to utilize a combination of GIS and cultural data from neighboring residential and ceremonial sites as they relate to each other and the landscape.
