Originally a product of Idaho and Boise High School, he is excited to be back in the Boise area after a 25 year hiatus, during which he called Maine, New Jersey, New York, Missouri, Iowa, and Indiana home. He has an active research program studying the origins and biology of the first Americans, and is currently involved in several international research collaborations including field sites in Bolivia and the Canadian Yukon. Looking to the future, he is eager to begin the process of unraveling the mystery of the unwritten history of the first Idahoans and the initial populating of the Northwest.
