Edwin grew up outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and earned his B.A. in Anthropology from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. His research interests center around the question of why did Maya settlements develop where they did within the landscape. For the past two summers, he has worked as a volunteer excavating Maya sites in northwest Belize and hopes to continue doing so.
Outside of Archaeology and the classroom, Edwin continues to serve as an officer in the U.S. Army Reserves. His hobbies include reading, fitness, enjoying the outdoors and playing with his roommate’s cat.
