I am a PhD student in archaeology at the University of New Mexico. I use geoarchaeological and geospatial methods to examine questions like:
- How do natural factors constrain agricultural productivity?
- How do people overcome natural landscape limitations using agricultural strategies (like irrigation)?
- How did ancient agricultural practices impact the environment?
- How can studying ancient agricultural practices be useful for modern communities?
My current research focuses on a network of dryland fields in South Kohala, Hawaiʻi Island.
