Emma is an undergraduate senior at UNCG majoring in Anthropology, Human Development & Family Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies. This 2011 field season at Cerro Mejía, Emma participated in her first archaeological field school and was funded by the Archaeological Institute of America's Jane C. Waldbaum Archaeological Field School Scholarship for first-time field students and the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship for study abroad students. In addition to her work in the field, Emma conducted research with Dr. Nash for her Senior Honors Project on the taphonomy of animal bone at Cerro Mejía. Her research was largely experimental and she is currently conducting the preliminary analysis of the collected data. This undergraduate research was funded by UNCG's Office of Undergraduate Research for the Summer and Fall 2011 semesters. Emma's interests include ethnozooarchaeology and modern Peruvian gender roles. To learn more about Emma's research, check out her Senior Honors Project.
