My research focuses on the dispersal of modern humans in northern environments; peopling of Northeast Asia, Beringia, and North America; Upper Paleolithic and Paleoindian archaeology; hunter-gatherer ecology and adaptations in extreme environments (arctic and arid); human-environment interactions; lithic technology; geoarchaeology; and environmental archaeology.
