Research Interests & Fieldwork
I study human, animal, and plant interactions and how these interactions impact each other and the environment. Previously, I researched and worked on understanding connections between goat and sheep domestication, the environment, and human populations in the Southern Levant during the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B (8,600-6,900 BCE).
Additionally, I developed a faunal report for the Alaskan Fish & Wildlife Services on zooarchaeological material from the Malriik site in Kiliuda Bay (KOD-405). The aim of this research was to use the zooarchaeological and charcoal assemblages from KOD-405 to expand on our understanding of past subsistence and occupation strategies.
