B.Sc. (Physics), Memorial University, 2020
Materials science, coastal archaeology, radiocarbon dating, bivalve mollusks, sclerochronology, human-environment interactions.
I will be studying how mollusk shell radiocarbon measurements can inform us of past human-environment interactions and how our understanding of time affects our understanding of coastal populations in Nova Scotia ~2000 years ago. I will use materials science techniques to refine our understanding of the shell material and to study the information contained in each portion of the shell.
