Research Interests & Fieldwork
I am interested in studying people’s influence and response to environmental pressure in the recent past. I am currently researching plant utilization of the enslaved people working and living at James Madison’s Montpelier, to examine differences in availability and utilization of botanical material within the enslaved community. I am conducting this research through phytolith analysis to contribute to previous studies of this site.
