research overview

  • I am an archaeologist, working in the U.S. Southwest. Most of my fieldwork has been in the Mogollon and Anasazi (Ancestral Pueblo) regions, but I've also dabbled in Hohokam, Casas Grandes, Jornada, and Rio Grande areas. My principal interests are human geography, built environments, and government; but my current research projects include Pinnacle Ruin, a Mesa Verde migrant community in southern New Mexico; Mimbres and post-Mimbres transitions at Woodrow Ruin and Black Mountain in southern New Mexico; and household archaeology at Yellow Jacket, a large Mesa Verde site in southwestern Colorado. I am also interested in museums (I am Curator of Archaeology at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History) and archaeology's role in intellectual life.
