I have an interest in people's effect on the environment and its subsequent effect on them. How a changing climate can create needed adaptations which lead to the beginnings of permanent settlement across the globe. I Have worked with Marilyn Masson and the NYSM on the Underground Railroad Archaeology Project this past season (Summer 2017) in an enlightening look into historic archaeology.
