Bio
Kevin is an archaeologist focused on the historical ecology of anthropogenic, second-nature landscapes. His research centers on exploring morphometric variation in sheep bones throughout the previous millennium in Iceland and coupling these trends with long-term erosional data to ask questions around land degradation and the social/economic justice of landscapes. Kevin teaches introductory courses in sociocultural anthropology, archaeology, and physical anthropology as an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland, American University, and Montgomery College. His pedagogy frames these courses around environmental literacy and ecological and social resilience. He’s done fieldwork in the US Southeast & Mid-Atlantic, Iceland, the Caribbean, and England. He has degrees from Young Harris College, the University of Georgia, and the University of Sheffield and is currently a doctoral candidate at the Zooarchaeology Laboratory at the University of Maryland.
