Research Interests

I am an archaeologist interested in material culture variability in the African Stone Age record, specifically, in how this variability relates to modern human origins, paleodemography and biogeography. I work on the development of quantitative methods to assess these relationships.

I am additionally interested in field data, and the accuracy and reliability of different field data collection protocols. I am particularly interested in how different approaches to field-work and excavation may have shaped how archaeologists tend to synthesize the African past. I am involved in field projects in Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Lesotho and South Africa.
