I am archaeologist researching the ancient societies that developed in the Andean region of South America. I am originally from Montréal where I completed my undergraduate and master's degrees in Anthropology at the Université de Montréal. I moved to Norwich in the UK to study for my doctorate at the Sainsbury Research Unit of the University of East Anglia and subsequently lived in Vancouver as part of a post-doctoral fellowship in Archaeology at Simon Fraser University. I landed a tenure-track job at Louisiana State University where I have been employed since 2008.

I am currently professor in the Department of Geography & Anthropology where I instruct various courses in anthropology, mentor bachelor, master, and doctoral students, and serve on various committees.
