I’m an archaeologist specializing in lithic technology and 3D artifact digitization. My PhD research focuses on questions relating to cultural transmission between Neanderthal and Anatomically Modern Human groups during the Middle to Upper Paleolithic Transition in western Europe. I currently work as a digital preservation specialist at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
