My master’s research has been focused on an investigation of subsistant toolkit structures within the Pacific Northwest region, with a focus on comparing the Coast and Plateau sub-regions. Through a comparison of toolkit structure data with environmental, mobility and population data at a regional scale we aim to better understand patterns that have been observed in larger scale studies.
