Biography

I am a second year M.A. student studying under Dr. Edward Henry. I study landscape archaeology using archaeogeophysical and geoarchaeological methods. My research focuses on the construction of the built environment, the delineation and use of space, and landscape modification of the Eastern Woodlands. For my thesis, I am using an array of geophysical and geoarchaeological datasets to evaluate the construction of earthen monuments, how earthen enclosures delineate space, the effects of monumentality on social identity, and monuments as infrastructure during the Early to Middle Woodland period at a site in Kentucky.

Other research interests I have include the Middle Missouri region in the northern Plains, and shifts in architecture that result in the "replacement" of previous forms.
