Visiting Assistant Professor of Art and Archaeology

Tatem 106A


I am a full four-sub-field specialist in anthropology, including cultural anthropology, archaeology, linguistics and physical anthropology. My regional specialization focuses upon the Maya of Yucatan, Mexico. I have traveled, lived and worked among the modern Yucatec Maya since I was 17 years old. My technical specialization in the field of archaeology is the use of remote sensing (satellite imagery, aerial photography, synthetic aperture radar) in the study of ancient Maya settlement patterns.
