Paul is a first-year graduate student studying with Dr. Jason LaBelle at the Center for Mountain and Plains Archaeology (CMPA). His primary research interests are oriented towards understanding the complex relationships between prehistoric hunter-gatherer populations and the environments they inhabited. He has a particular interest in the archaeological study of subsistence systems, cultural responses to climate change, and adaptation to environmental and anthropogenic stressors. Paul has additional interests in archaeology as professionally practiced in the western United States, including the application of advanced archaeological methods towards resource conservation, public lands management, and contemporary issues in historic preservation.
