Geoarchaeology

I am interested in applying geoarchaeological research methods to paleoanthropological sites as a means of determining depositional age and geologic mechanisms of site formation. Specifically, my research involves luminescence dating and grain-size analysis to formulate a depositional model for hominid-bearing sediments within the Solo River terrace sequence in Central Java, Indonesia.
