Short Bio

I received my undergraduate degree in Anthropology from the University of Louisville and my master’s and doctoral degrees in the same field at the University of New Mexico. My research interests during graduate school expanded from a focus on Neanderthal and modern human subsistence strategies (particularly the rol of small game) to human ecology during the late Pleistocene and how humans interacted with their environments during periods of climate change. I am currently working with Dr. João Cascalheira’s ERC Project, FINISTERRA, where I will be reconstructing Neanderthal ecology in southern Iberia through zooarchaeological and stable isotopic means.
