near surface geophysics, archaeological geophysics and GIS for locating buried archaeological
and geological features and understanding human spatial behavior. She has extensive
experience with ground-penetrating radar, electromagnetic induction, magnetometry,
and electrical resistance. She has conducted geophysical surveys and archaeological
investigations in Jordan, Portugal, and Bolivia, China, Botswana, and throughout North
America. She has conducted near-surface geophysical surveys in the Middle East, Europe,
China, Africa, South America, and throughout North America.
