Prehistoric archaeology (the Northeast and Mesoamerica), archaic period, the development of social complexity, zooarchaeology, lithic analysis, and bioarchaeology.  Relating to cultural resource management, I am interested in the role archaeologists play in regards to large-scale construction projects, as well as differing and changing archaeological methodologies as they relate, apply, and adjust to different CRM situations.

Current CRSP Project(s):
Archaeology along the North-South Arterial: Data Recovery of 705 Roberts Street, Utica, N.Y., Construction monitoring for the reconstruction of the North-South Arterial, Utica, N.Y.

Current Research Projects:

  • Lithic resource exploitation and tool production in Southern New York (with Daniel Mazeau)
  • Analysis of quartz lithic debitage from the Lower Hudson Valley of New York
