Major: Anthropology

Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a first year PhD Student in the Anthropology Department (Archaeology track). I am broadly interested in understanding how human-environment networks of relationships are experienced and perceived contextually – in the past and in the present – and also how these landscapes change over time. My research explores the local network of inter-relationships found on the central coast of Santa Catarina (Southern Brazil), trying to comprehend how populations linked to the shell-matrix sites (5000-600 BP) were synchronic and diachronically entangled with other human and non-human components of their surrounding environment.
