I am an archaeology graduate student at the University of Washington in Seattle. 

I graduated in 2011 from the University of California Riverside with a B.S. in Anthropology. Since then I joined on the Ifugao Archaeological Project (IAP) with Dr. Stephen Acabado and UCLA. I also interned with the Saving the Stones Conservation program through the International Conservation Center and the Israeli Antiquities Authority in 2013. I aim to focus my research on the archaeology of colonial influences in Southeast Asia.

I care about community and public awareness and their involvement in cultural heritage and its management. I am also interested in the role of interactive media experiences in awareness building and outreach.
