In 2006 I graduated from the University of Auckland, New Zealand with a BSc in Geography and Marine Science and a BA in Anthropology (Archaeology). Following this I spent four years working as an archaeologist and was involved in a number of research and commercial resource management projects throughout Latin America (Belize, Ecuador, Peru), New Zealand and Hawaii.
While I am no longer actively pursuing archaeological research I remain interested in understanding human (pre)history, particularly within the Andes. Indeed my work in Peru is tightly framed within a human context of water supply and use. Additionally, many of the precolonial cultural/organisational systems remain intact to this day, giving me a unique perspective on the current situation.
The results of my research have been included in a number of technical reports and professional presentations and are in preparation for journal publication.
