Research Interests

I am an archaeologist interested in understanding how environmental change altered the distribution of ancient human populations across the landscape, and how they used and interacted with parts of it. Currently, I am part of the Early Occupation of Sicily (EOS) project co-directed by Christian Tryon (UConn) and Ilaria Patania (Washington University). The initial human colonization record of Sicily is a natural laboratory for interrogating the impacts and changing roles of hunter-gathers on previously unoccupied landscapes. As part of the EOS team, my research focuses on the impact of climate-driven environmental change on raw material availability and the structuring of technological and mobility strategies among the early occupants of Sicily.
