Curriculum Vitae
My research interests include the application of quantitative methods to archaeological questions. While I do not focus on a particular time period, I have worked more with data from hunting and gathering sites than complex ancient societies or historic sites. I am the co-author on a book analyzing an area at the Gault site, a Clovis camp in central Texas that explores a number of ways of using quantitative methods to analyze the data.  In other research I am looking at the distribution of historic sites at Fort Hood, TX and I am collaborating on the analysis of fishing practices in Dominica. I also have a revised book manuscript on quantitative methods for archaeologists using R under review.

My teaching ranges from introductory courses in general anthropology and archaeology to upper division anthropology courses on the archaeology of North America and of ancient civilizations to graduate courses in archaeological method and theory and the quantitative analysis of anthropological data.
