I am an archaeologist working in the Central Andes, with past experience on projects in Peru, Ecuador, and Mexico. My interests are in early social complexity, and in the myriad strategies by which early elites constructed and enforced authority through religious, political, economic, and routine discourses. My recent Master’s research examined a ceramic assemblage from the Jama River Valley of northern Manabí, Ecuador. This study discussed the Late Formative (1000BC-500BC) Tabuchila occupation of the valley, and its contributions to the Chorrera ceramic style of the Ecuadorian western lowlands.
