My research interests focus on geoarchaeology, surficial geology, and geomorphology.
My geoarhaeological interests are focussed in four areas.
1. Using geology to understand the physical context of archaeological sites. (Maine)
2. Using ground-penetrating radar to investigate site extent and stratigraphy (Maine, Canada, Peru)
3. Using oceanographic information (bathymetry, side scan sonar, and seismic reflection profiling) to evaluate the cultural resource potential of submerged regions. (Gulf of Maine)
4. Investiating the source areas of lithic resources. (Maine)
I have also been involved in surfical mapping as part of the State of Maine's surfical mapping program (3 quadrangles), and am currently the co-PI of a program to monitor geomorphological features related to dam removal and fish passage construction on the Penobscot River in Maine.
My service contribution to the geological community has been largely in the form of organizing and leading field trips and assisting in organizing local and regional geological meetings.
As a field trip leader, I have overseen and assisted in the production of numerous field guides. As a meeting organizer, I have developed technical sessions, primarily in the field of geoarchaeology.
