Born and raised in North Dakota, I’m an anthropological archaeologist interested in early complexity, both in the New and Old World. My specializations include the Neolithic of the Eastern Mediterranean, the late prehistoric period of the Upper Plains region of North America, the anthropology and archaeology of food and foodways, ceramic studies, and early art and religion. My undergraduate research and fieldwork focused on the Upper Plains region of North America, while investigations undertaken towards my Master’s thesis focused on the site of Fıstıklı Höyük in Southeastern Turkey. Currently, I'm working to explore Neolithic cooking practices and culinary traditions from my dissertation site of Halai in East-Central Greece. Trained as a ceramicist, my methodologies focus on use-wear alteration and the analysis of archaeological residues.
