I am a Professor in the anthropology department at East Carolina University where I have worked since 1996. I received my Ph.D. in 1994 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research interests include the archaeology of prehistoric hunter-gatherers in the Southeastern United States, particularly hunter-gatherer adaptations at the end of the last Ice Age. My methodological specializations include stone tool analysis, spatial analysis, and hunter-gatherer settlement systems.
