Research Interests: Preclassic Central Mexico, Monumental Archaeology in the Maya area, Mortuary practices, and Museology, Dissertation Research: I am focusing on the Early Preclassic/Formative period in Central Mexico, particularly the sites of Tlatilco and Tlapacoya. I am comparing the interaction: trade and exchange, as well as possible similarities/differences between Early Formative communities located around Lake Texcoco, as well as with San Lorenzo and the Olmec.
