I am an M.S. student, and my research interests include prehistoric Andean archaeology, the archaeology of ethnicity, mortuary archaeology, dental archaeology, biodistance, and fluctuating asymmetry. I received my B.A. from Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne in anthropology. I have spent two field seasons working in Peru. My undergraduate research project was focused on measuring the fluctuating asymmetry of deciduous dentition through periods of environmental degradation and sociopolitical upheaval at the Moche site of San Jose de Moro in the Jequetepeque Valley. I presented my research as a poster project at the 2012 Midwest Conference on Andean and Amazonian Archaeology and Ethnohistory.
