I am an anthropological archaeologist investigating the complex ways heritage is mobilized in the modern world. One of my primary research interests centers on the maintenance of racial privilege in the recent and contemporary past. I routinely combine historical archaeology, intangible heritage, and documentary research to better understand complex histories of disenfranchisement in the US and beyond. A growing engagement with postcolonial theory and intersectionality accentuates my recent scholarship and guides a long-standing interest in public outreach.
