Current Office Hours
On sabbatical autumn 2013
I'm an anthropological archaeologist whose interests are global. Much of my research has focused on the prehistory of the Northwest Mexico and U.S. Southwest (the "NWSW" to those who work on both sides of the border). I have growing experience/interest in Mayan archaeology in Belize, and I maintain research interests in the peopling of the Americas and the Amazon Basin of Brazil. Topical interests include regional systems and exchange, method and theory, quantitative and computer methods, settlement systems, ceramic analysis, and lithic technology.
