I am primarily interested in the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in aiding interpretations at archaeological sites. This includes the use of GIS to help with site analysis through spatial density plots and using the technology to help develop future research plans. My work here has developed my love of New York State history, particularly domestic sites and activity from colonization to the early historic period. Additionally, I am interested in the faunal analysis of archaeological sites as a tool to learn about food consumption practices and site use.
