Understanding the dynamics of socio-ecological systems is essential for explaining evolutionary, ecological, and historical processes. Our scientific team engages in the study of human behavior, adaptation, and transformation of its environment over time by relying on the material remains left by people and recovered by archaeologists and other paleoscientists. Our Environmental Archaeology Lab aims to test hypotheses, construct explanatory models, and provide case-studies about the changing nature of human-environment interactions over many spatiotemporal scales. Most of our research focuses on Precolumbian South America, but we are interested in general and comparative case-studies. Our work is an interdisciplinary and international effort involving a wide group of collaborators.
