I am an assistant professor and Tier II Canada Research Chair in Environmental Archaeology in the Department of Anthropology at Trent University, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. I completed my undergraduate education at McMaster University (2003-2007) and my doctoral research at Western University (2008-2013). Between 2013 and 2016 I held SSHRC, Izaak Walton Killam Foundation, and NSERC Banting postdoctoral fellowships in the Department of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. My research uses stable isotope analysis to better understand how humans have interacted with and impacted their environment, with a particular emphasis on the analysis of archaeological materials. 

If you are interested in applying to work with me for graduate studies consult the graduate program websites for the Department of Anthropology's MA program and the School of Environmental and Life Sciences' (EnLS) MSc and PhD programs. For more information about specific projects that may be available to graduate students, consult the RESEARCH tab on this site or contact me directly.
