My research interests are focused on the historical archaeology of the Middle Atlantic, in particular the Chesapeake region. I am interested in a number of different topics, in particular the African American past. I have conducted research in Michigan, Maryland, and Virginia, with a particular focus on plantations, landscapes, and public archaeology. My dissertation research has included the study of a 19th-century slave and tenant plantation at Historic St. Mary's City. I have also conducted field excavations on a number of Virginia plantation sites while working with the James River Institute for Archaeology, and led a number of mitigation projects at Michigan State University, serving as the Campus Archaeologist at the MSU Campus Archaeology Program. I have additional research interests in digital cultural heritage and public archaeology. I have presented regularly at conferences such as the Society for Historical Archaeology, Society for American Archaeology, Mid-Atlantic Archaeology Conference, and the Council for Northeast Archaeology. You can see some of these presentations, as well as learn about my research, below.
