I am an anthropological archaeologist interested in ritual, household archaeology, ceramics, and the development of complex societies in Mesoamerica. As of July 2022, I am an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Wake Forest University.

Most of my research has been conducted at the early Maya site of Ceibal, Guatemala, and I recently began a new project in Veracruz, Mexico. My work has been supported by internal and external grants and published in peer-reviewed journals.

In addition to my research, I am committed to undergraduate teaching and archaeological public outreach.
