I received my MA in biological anthropology followed by my PhD, in the same field, from the University of Toronto in 2003.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley (2006-2008), and an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology, University of Toronto (2008-2010).
I have also spent several years working in both the private and public sectors as a field archaeologist specializing in research involving human skeletal remains.
The Tay Point Archaeology (TPA) project provides a unique opportunity to explore the ecological sustainability of a single Huron-Wendat community. The archaeological sites of Tay Point reveal the relocation sequence of a single community over a 250-year period (AD1400-1650).
TPA has two main research objectives:
TPA involves a multiyear program of historical and archaeological research from 2014 through 2018, details can be found at http://www.tay.trendcentricweb.com/.
I have laboratory technician opportunities for undergraduate students interested in Huron-Wendat archaeology. Fieldwork in Penetanguishene, Ont., may also be available in the summer. Contact me for more information.
