I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology at Washington State University working with Dr. Tim Kohler. My dissertation research (as part of the openSKOPE.org project) focuses on producing and evaluating paleoclimatic models that in turn influence maize productivity estimates in agent-based simulations. These data can be used to better understand changes in demography and explore a variety of questions surrounding social and cultural responses to climate change.
