Hi!  I’m an anthropological archaeologist with interests in a variety of topics including the environmental history and archaeology of the New World. I am skilled in geoarchaeology, sedimentology, ethnohistory, and the archaeology of complex societies. I currently teach at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts in the Humanities department.  Previously, I have taught at Tulane University in both the Anthropology and Environmental Studies departments.  I have taught field and classroom-based courses, in topics ranging from culture history, to archaeological methods, to environmental studies.
