I can’t continue personal inaction in the midst of our climate crisis and I’m committed to no longer flying to join conferences. I will face challenges in no longer flying at all, as my family is located in Europe. The Covid-19 pandemic showed that we can hold digital conferences: let’s not stop doing so!
I’m an environmental archaeologist and ethnobiologist who employs an interdisciplinary research program to understand how humans adapted their foraging practices and agricultural strategies to new environments and have developed resilience in the face of climatic and social change. I employ a variety of different methodologies in my research, including archaeobotany, paleoclimate reconstruction, and computational modeling.
