I am an Associate Professor in the Anthropology Department at Portland State University. My research interests include past hunter-gatherer societies, human ecodynamics, evolutionary theory, ceramic technologies, applied archaeology, and archaeology of the Arctic, Subarctic and Pacific Northwest.  Cross-cutting these interests is a long-term commitment to community engagement and collaborative research in all aspects of my work.

I use this website to share publications, courses and other teaching related information, as well as current research.  Take a look over here if you are a prospective student.  Over on the blog page, my students and I enjoy posting about day to day research activities and archaeological topics that catch my interest.
