Research Interests

I am an anthropological archaeologist specializing in the Andean region of South America and my primary research interests lie in early complex societies of the north coast of Peru. My fieldwork in the Moche and Vir˙ valleys led to research into statecraft, urbanism, city states systems, social differentiation, land and animal management strategies, food production and consumption, trade networks, mortuary and sacrificial practices, and ancient textiles. This work was informed by different research methods, including archaeological survey and excavations, radiocarbon dating, remote sensing work, stable isotope analysis and the use of historical documents and Geographic Information Systems.
