Matthew earned his B.A in Anthropology with a minor in Political Science from the University of Victoria, Canada. After a field season with Dr. Pante at the IFR Olduvai Gorge field school in Tanzania, he has moved to Colorado State University to pursue a graduate degree in Archaeology.
Matthew’s current research interests are in Zooarchaeology and Taphonomy. He is very excited by the new high-resolution 3-D profiler recently acquired by the Anthropology department. This new department asset opens innovative and exciting new research opportunities. He hopes to utilize this device to conduct some groundbreaking research concerning tooth mark morphology.
When not working in the lab Matthew looks forward to mountain biking, trail running, and generally exploring the beautiful landscape of his new home.
