M.A. Research:

My MA research is using soil micromorphology to understand the depositional and post-depositional processes of a shell midden located on Calvert Island on the Central Coast of British Columbia. In the process of analyzing our samples we intend to look for the presence of ancient DNA as well as conduct residue analyses to further understand the use and formation of shell middens.
