I am a recent graduate of the Anthropology Department and have worked in the LCA for the past two years. My work in lab has involved developing R programs such as the zooArchGUI package, which gives users a simple way to input and analyze statistical data. I also have worked on creating R programs to easily conduct paleoenvironmental reconstructions from archaeological sites, and on gathering information for a regional archaeological database using the published literature and Cultural Resource Management reports. I also received field experience in summer 2018, while surveying, mapping, and testing a newly discovered lithic workshop nearby. I will be working at the LCA in fall 2018 while preparing my applications for graduate school in archaeology starting fall 2019.
