I am an anthropological archaeologist interested in ritual, household archaeology, ceramics, and the development of complex societies in Mesoamerica. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Wake Forest University. I will be on research leave for the 2024-2025 academic year.

Most of my research has been conducted at the early Maya site of Ceibal, Guatemala. 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.
