Research Interests & Fieldwork

I am interested in numerous fields of science and how different aspects of each can be combined for new interdisciplinary perspectives on projects’ aims and objectives. I previously completed an internship at the Arnold Arboretum focusing on wood anatomy morphometrics to predict wood elasticity. Currently, I am utilizing phytolith analysis to determine the composition of specific cereal grains at Tomb 50, a burial site in Tel Megiddo, Israel. My research will contribute to previous and ongoing phytolith analyses completed at this site.
