I graduated from the University of Alabama with my bachelors in Anthropology in 2016 and joined the master’s program the year after. I have a background in Cultural Resource Management, specifically in the state of Pennsylvania. I interned for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation & State Historic Preservation Office over the summer of 2017, where I helped develop a new methodology to test efficacy and accuracy of the Pennsylvania Predictive Model for Prehistoric Archaeological Sites (keep an eye out for our presentation at the 2018 SAA meeting!). In my free time outside of my graduate studies, I am an avid long distance runner hoping to qualify for the Boston marathon in the next few years, as well as beginning to shift towards ultramarathons. My undergraduate anthropology degree was focused on biological anthropology, and my continued interest in human biology and human adaptation is clearly shown through my passion for endurance sports although my academic pursuits have turned more towards archaeology. My research focuses on bioarchaeology, Geographic Information Systems, data analytics, cremation, Predictive Modeling for Site Location, and landscape archaeology.
