I am an anthropologist and archaeologist with broad interests that originate in questions about the evolution of human subsistence adaptation and which have more recently led to a focus on using social network analysis to better incorporate social structural constraints and economic inequalities into behavioral ecological approaches to cooperation. Research based on my ethnographic fieldwork in the Canadian Arctic has focused on the role of traditional foods and food sharing in Inuit food security, resilience to climate change, and health and well-being. My archaeological research focuses on Neandertal subsistence ecology and on zooarchaeological methods.
