I am an anthropologically-trained archaeologist interested in historical archaeology, the archaeology of colonialism, collaborative Indigenous archaeology, and archaeological theory. My research focuses on Indigenous-colonial histories of New England and the Great Lakes. Since 2010, I have directed the Mohegan Archaeological Field School in collaboration with the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut. The field school studies eighteenth- and nineteenth-century archaeological sites on the Mohegan Reservation in Uncasville, Connecticut, while training new generations of archaeology students in collaborative Indigenous archaeology and archaeological method and theory.
Before joining Tufts Anthropology, I held academic positions in the US, UK, and Canada. Most recently, I was Curator and Vettoretto Chair of North American Archaeology at the Royal Ontario Museum and Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Toronto.
