    My interests as an anthropologist concentrate on the relationships between culture and landscape, as evident from archaeological evidence of architecture, monuments, burials, and the built environment of past settlements. I have a longstanding interest in the archaeology of ancestral Cherokee and Catawba towns in the southern Appalachians, with particular emphasis on responses by Native American groups to European contact and colonialism in southeastern North America. I am developing new research interests in the archaeology of monuments and settlements in the Lower Mississippi Valley and coastal Louisiana, focusing on the late prehistoric and protohistoric periods. My research includes archaeological fieldwork, analyses of archaeological collections, and the consideration of Native American myths and legends as an interpretive framework for studying the archaeology of Native American sites.

    I am a physical anthropologist who specializes in human skeletal biology, paleopathology, bioarchaeology, and forensic anthropology. Currently I am a professor of anthropology at Tulane University, where I teach courses in human osteology, paleopathology, forensic anthropology, the study of mummified remains, and South American archaeology. My primary research area is Andean South America, with a particular focus on prehistoric populations of coastal and highland Peru. My research interests include pathology in ancient skeletal and mummified remains, trepanation and other ancient surgery, and warfare, human sacrifice, and mortuary practices. In the United States, I compliment my South American research with forensic anthropology: assisting local, state, and federal law enforcement, coroners, and medical examiners in identifying and interpreting human skeletal remains from medicolegal contexts.
