Chris is an anthropological archaeologist specializing in the Early Bronze Age of the South Caucasus. He examines the relationship between people and their everyday material objects in domestic contexts and what that can tell us about cultural identity and social sovereignty in the fourth millennium BC. He also works with his advisor, Dr. Ian Lindsay, on Project ArAGATS, an Armenian-American collaboration focusing on South Caucasus archaeology.
