About Me

I am a professor at the University of Alberta, and my specialization is the archaeology of human-animal relationships. I Most of my field research takes place in the North American and Siberian Arctic and Eastern Russia. Much of my recent work involves the study of dog and reindeer domestication, and the long-term history of dog sledding. Most of this work is zooarchaeological, but I also have a strong interest in ethnoarchaeology and human-animal studies.
