My love for digging in the dirt started at age 3. Eventually I became an undergraduate student in archaeology at the University of Toronto in Canada. My first field experience took place in South Africa, and from then on I was committed to the archaeology of human origins in Africa.
I am now a Ph.D. Candidate in Anthropological Sciences. I conduct my research in the Archaeology of Technology Lab with my supervisor, Prof. John Shea, and conduct field research with Dr. Sonia Harmand as a member of the West Turkana Archaeological Project.
My research investigates the evolution of the uniquely human ability to transform stone into shaped tools. I focus on stone tools from the Early Pleistocene archaeological record of eastern Africa, specifically in West Turkana, Kenya.
