My research focuses on issues of emergent social complexity, gender and other forms of social identity through the examination of prehistoric technologies, and systems of exchange.  I employ a multidisciplinary methodology that includes typology, experimental archaeology, spatial analysis, and analytical techniques such as gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).  I have participated in field projects in Peru, the Great Basin, Southern California, San Nicolas Island, and the North American Midwest.
