Research Interests

My research applies zooarchaeological techniques (the study of animal bones from archaeological sites) to gain a better understanding of past human groups.  I am particularly interested in the ways in which the capture and consumption of animals serve to both influence and express human culture.  I work at a variety of geographic and temporal scales to reconstruct trends in diet, prey selection, mobility, and social organization, primarily among Arctic and Sub-Arctic hunter-gatherers.  I am also interested in combining archaeological survey, excavation and traditional Inuvialuit knowledge to better understand the development of cultural landscapes in the Western Canadian Arctic from the earliest human occupation of the region to the recent past.
