My current research interests include examining temporal changes in prehistoric settlement patterns in eastern North America. I am interested in the relationships between prehistoric landuse, environmental change, and subsistence practices. My study areas include western Tennessee and eastern Kentucky. I conduct archaeological spatial analysis utilizing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) at the methodological, analytical, and theoretical stages of archaeology research. My fieldwork employs the use of GIS and GPS to develop and implement statistically robust sampling designs. My theoretical interests include evolutionary ecology, cultural ecology, and evolutionary archaeology.
