My research focuses on Cambodian cultural landscapes and human-ecological relationships, contributing to the interdisciplinary dialogue of urbanism, space, and water management to understand past processes of urbanization and regional networks.
Before coming to Stanford, I completed a B.A. in Anthropology modified with Geography from Dartmouth College, and an M.Sc. in Archaeological Information Systems from the University of York in England. In 2019-2020 I received a Fulbright Independent Research Grant to continue my Master's Thesis research in Cambodia, where I conducted fieldwork at the Koh Ker Archaeological Complex and used remote sensing techniques for analyses of medieval hydrological systems.
