- SBS S-349
- Research Interests
- My research interests include Mesoamerican Ethnohistory, Historical Archaeology, and Environmental Archaeology with a specialty in Zooarchaeology. Since 2006, I have been directing a research project that examines the social and cultural origins of revolution in Puebla, Mexico using the disciplines of ethnohistory, ethnography, and archaeology. I have just completed a book tentatively titled "Propagating Revolution: Explorations of a Mexican Hacienda" (to be published by the University of New Mexico Press in mid-2013) which draws on seven years of research in Puebla’s Valley of Atlixco.
Prior to joining the history department, I taught environmental humanities and anthropology at Stony Brook's Southampton campus. I have also taught for the University of the Americas in Puebla, Mexico and Connecticut College. Outside of Academia, I worked for the National Park Service and the Boston Museum of Science. I received a BA in History and Archaeology from the University of Massachusetts-Boston and a PhD in Anthropology from Yale University.
