I am a bioarchaeologist studying the relationship between diet, health, and identity in the Bronze Age. I am currently working with a skeletal collection from northern Serbia. My research combines multiple lines of evidence - physical, chemical, and micro - in reconstructing life in the past.
I'm a Design Researcher and Applied Anthropologist based in Portland, OR. My work focuses on using human-centered research methods to generate insights for strategy and design. I have a deep affinity for helping organizations shape and improve products and services through understanding people.
I am interested in human and environmental interactions in places such as Southeast Asia (especially West Papua, Maluku, Kalimantan) and the Amazon. My current research focuses on social dynamics of marine conservation in the Raja Ampat archipelago of West Papua Indonesia.
I am an environmental anthro working for NMFS in Honolulu. My dissertation research in St. Croix USVI examined fishermen participation in fisheries management. My current work examines how marine resource management impacts fishing communities in HI, American Samoa, CNMI, & Guam.
I'm an anthropologist and activist who uses ethnographic research on bicycling to advocate for social justice in urban sustainability. A doctoral candidate at the University of California, Irvine, I'm currently writing a dissertation about human infrastructure for bicycling in Los Angeles.
I'm an archaeologist who works in the private sector for a cultural resource management firm in Atlanta. My job as a project manager offers me a great mix of office and field work, and I'm still able to pursue my passion for historical archaeology and public outreach.
