  • PhD Student - Archaeology

My research focuses on transitions in human behavior from the Upper Paleolithic to the Neolithic in North China and is tied to broader research questions about how people respond to the pronounced environment change during this time and what drives people in certain regions towards food production and plant/animal domestication. I focus on the combination of lithic and spatial analyses to explore issues like human mobility, land use strategy, subsistence intensification and cultural transmission.
