I am an Associate Professor of Archaeology. My other local affiliations include the eScience Institute, the Burke Museum, the Center for Statistics and Social Sciences, and the Quaternary Research Center.
My main research activities combine models from evolutionary ecology with analyses of archaeological evidence to investigate past human behaviour. Specific interests include the hominin colonisation of mainland Southeast Asia, forager technologies and ecology in Australia, mainland Southeast Asia and elsewhere. I analyse how archaeology engages with local communities and popular culture. I am also interested in techniques and methods for reproducible research. I supervise the geoarchaeology laboratory.
