Zooarchaeology Lab

The Zooarchaeology Laboratory specializes in the analysis of vertebrate remains from archaeological sites, but also works with invertebrate, paleontological, and ecological samples. The comparative collection numbers over 5,000 vertebrate and invertebrate specimens with an emphasis on animals from the southeastern United States, adjacent waters, and the Caribbean.

I am nutritionist by training. I earned my BS and MS Nutrition degrees at the University of the Philippines Los Baños and University of Wisconsin Stout.  Prior to doing my doctoral studies, I was as an assistant professor at the University of the Philippines Los Baños. I am an advocate of the use of culinary heritage as a platform of food and nutrition security.  My research has been mostly on Philippine food and consumption. The most recent one documents the traditional food system of indigenous groups in Ifugao – a globally important agricultural heritage site.

I am an environmental archaeologist whose research focuses on human-ecosystem interactions along both the European and North American coastlines of the Atlantic. I combine analyses of tree rings, shells and other faunal remains, and coastal palaeohydrology in order to better understand the localized manifestations of climate change episodes in the ancient past and how these shifts intersected with cultural trajectories.

My dissertation research models agricultural land use decision-making and investigates how farmers manage soil resources for both short-term production requirements and long-term productivity. I explore how these decisions influence both long-term changes in agricultural livelihoods and the patterns and process of disturbances in soils, including soil movement and the loss of fertility.
