I am currently Vice-President, Academic and Provost of Simon Fraser University, and have very limited time for graduate supervision. I will consider taking on supervisory duties for one graduate student in fall 2013, provided that she or he has a well-defined zooarchaeological research topic.

General Research Interests

Research specialties include zooarchaeology, cultural ecology, PaleoIndian adaptations, southwestern United States.

Research Programs

I am continuing to undertake research in the American Southwest, and currently have a SSHRC grant to explore short-term human impacts on the environment through analysis of very well dated assemblages of animal remains.  This is part of a long-term project on the zooarchaeology of the northern Southwest.  Previous work on fauna from Chaco great houses is currently being prepared for publication. 

Our earlier work at Charlie Lake Cave, British Columbia is largely complete.
