Prospective Graduate Students

I am actively recruiting doctoral students (and, in more select circumstances, master’s students) to join my group. Students interested in any aspect of environmental archaeology or the study of past human-environmental interactions are welcome to apply. Students interested in working in my lab can apply to either the department of Anthropology at UCSD or the Geoscience Division of Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Students are able to take a wide variety of courses across both Anthropology and Scripps, providing them with a unique and cross disciplinary perspective on environmental archaeology.

Our laboratory is located steps from one of the beautiful beaches in North America: La Jolla Shores Beach. sunset2

I am interested in working with students who have an interest in using modeling to study the impact of climatic change on ancient agricultural strategies and land-use patterns. A number of archaeological research projects are currently underway in our laboratory that offer opportunities for thesis and dissertation research, this includes material from Thailand, Pakistan, India, China,  Israel and from Eastern Tibet.

Please contact me directly with questions about our graduate program or to discuss your potential application.
