Hello all, I'm the full time Anthropology faculty member here at GRCC where I teach introductory courses in the discipline and advise students interested in pursing careers in Anthropology. My education includes broad training in the four sub-field approach common to North American Anthropology, although in terms of research specialty I am an anthropological archaeologist. As an anthropological archaeologist I use the archaeological record to address general questions about human behavior. In particular my current research uses the archaeological record to investigate how past human societies have responded to instances of rapid environmental change.
