I  joined the University of Georgia in 2014 as an Assistant Professor with a joint appointment in the departments of Anthropology and Geography.

My research is focused on human adaptation and resilience to climate change and natural resource unpredictability in prehistory, and how our understanding of past human response to environmental change informs current thinking about these issues.
