Jonathan’s research focuses on reconstructing Pleistocene hominin landuse patterns from stone artifact distributions. Specifically, this involves combining agent-based modeling, with lithic analysis, and geographic information science in order to generate more informed hypotheses regarding hominin-environment interactions.
