NSF Graduate Research Fellow/PhD Candidate
My academic interests are human, climate and environmental interactions through time. For my thesis research, I am investigating the origins of an extinct canid (the warrah) that was endemic to the Falkland Islands and am trying to determine if pre-European humans perhaps introduced the foxes to the islands. It is currently unknown whether or not there was a pre-colonial human presence in the Falklands, so my research is an interdisciplinary endeavor that combines the fields of archaeology, paleoecology and paleontology. Outside of academia, I am an avid outdoor enthusiast, whitewater kayaker, telemark skier, and backyard farmer.
