Geophysicist with CAD/GIS Experience (PhD Candidate)



I am an archaeogeophysicist with a background in machine learning, forensic science, and human osteology.  I am versatile in survey as well as writing project designs, technical reports, and in creating graphics for technical reports, social media, and website to convey each project’s unique data in the best way possible.  I am seeking a geophysicist, geomatics, or illustrator role to expand my archaeology career and thrive in an environment that requires independent problem-solving skills and focus under short deadlines.
