I study the influences of ecological, demographic, and social factors on prehistoric hunter-gatherers’ behaviors and broader cultural change through time. My current archaeological field projects in Patagonia center on landscape and resource use, particularly during times of resource stress. Identifying prehistoric people's responses to changed resource availability--including technological adaptations and enduring environmental modifications--will help us better understand broader human--environment dynamics and adaptive capacities.
