My doctorate is in archaeology and I've been teaching human evolution and prehistory at Portland State University's Department of Anthropology for ten years.

My research largely focues on the native peoples of the Lower Columbia River and the aboriginal watercraft of Northwestern South America. I specialize in usewear analysis, site-formation processes, evolution, and statistical methods, and my main collaborator has been Kenneth M. Ames.

Teaching keeps me fresh with the material, and I learn as much as my students in every class. Although I love everything I teach, I particularly love teaching Neanderthal Europe and European Prehistory.
