Back to the Future!

I'm a UBCO grad with a BA (Anthropology) and a PhD (Interdisciplinary Studies: paleoethnobotany, environmental archaeology). My research in American Southwest focusses on the archaeology and history of its first peoples - the Ancestral Puebloans. From early rockshelters to magnificent multi-storied architecturally complex homes and ritual sites, the Puebloans have much to tell us of adaptation in environmentally and socially challenging times. Thanks UBC for the experience of a lifetime!
