My teaching and research focuses on the development of Integrative Paleoscience. This work integrates archaeological, paleo-climate, and paleo-environmental records to build interdisciplinary and comparative research on the long-term growth of human social-ecological systems on Earth, contributing deep time perspectives for theoretical development in human population ecology.
