Juan Monzon

Degree Program: MA


I graduated from the University of Alabama in 2020 with B.A. in Anthropology and a minor in Psychology. My experiences with fieldwork at the PIAPAN and San Jose de Moro projects on the North Coast of Peru have continued to drive my interest in Andean archaeology, as has my work in the Ancient People and Plants Lab under Dr. Katherine Chiou. Throughout my M.A. I will be collaborating with Jenna Hurtubise at the PIAPAN project, focusing on feasting patterns and periods of transition at the site by excavating atop an adobe-stepped platform situated at the peak of a small mountain.
