Research and Teaching interests
I am interested in complex hunter gatherer societies, with a focus on technological evolution and innovation -- in how these developments are socially constructed and then culturally transmitted, and how they can be traced archaeologically.

I am primarily working with dual inheritance models on the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America, within an ethnographic present circa 1870 - 1900. I hope to apprehend models that will be useful in understanding cultures beyond direct observation, e.g. the Upper Palaeolithic in Europe.
