I am an archaeologist who has worked in Cambodia for over 10 years. I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Anthropology Department at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I am also an Honorary Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an Honorary Associate at the University of Sydney.
I’m always happy to hear from people, so feel free to contact me via the contact page.
My PhD research examined Iron Age (500 BC – AD 500) trade networks in mainland Southeast Asia and the emergence of complexity in the Mekong Delta through a study of stone and glass beads. If you want to read more about my work my Academia.edu Profile is here.
More recently, I have been working with the Greater Angkor Project exploring Angkorian residential patterns and my current project involves undertaking household archaeology at Angkor.
This blog is focused on issues related to archaeology, history, and culture in Cambodia and Southeast Asia more generally. I began blogging while I was doing PhD research in Cambodia in 2008 in order to share my experiences in the field with my friends and family back home. My time there was financially supported by a Fulbright IIE grant and a grant from the Center for Khmer Studies.
I return to Cambodia regularly to undertake fieldwork and will use this blog to post some of my own experiences in the field as well as discuss news and articles related to Cambodian culture and archaeology.
My dissertation research has been supported by numerous organizations and I would not have been able to undertake this research without their help:
