Projects

Varying from field and lab experience to web development, my projects focus on ways to improve my archaeological, technical, and leadership skills.

I worked with Dr. Jeb Card in lab sessions by answering questions, instructing students, and assisting with lab procedures.

I independently ran a lab session focusing on arrowhead classification.
