I received my B.Arts Sc. at McMaster University in 2016, where I completed a combined honours program in Arts & Science and Anthropology. During my undergraduate studies, I held a research assistantship at Sustainable Archaeology McMaster and worked as a member of the the Stelida Naxos Archaeological Project excavation team.
My MA research involves the XRF analysis of soil cores from a variety of locations in Southern Ontario using an ITRAX core scanner. Through my research, I hope to identify activity areas and distinguish between different intensities of occupation in Archaic and Woodland contexts. I am particularly interested in the chemical impacts of ephemeral hunter-gatherer movement. My research should speak to human impacts on soil chemistry, landscape use patterns, and the potential resolution of archaeological data.
