Biography: A southern California native, Emily is a second-year master's student with plans to focus her research on the prehistoric rock art of the Great Basin.

As a Research Assistant for UNR's Great Basin Paleoindian Research Unit (GBPRU), Emily is enjoying the opportunity to contribute to ongoing research and gain valuable experience. In the Spring of 2012 Emily will begin an internship with the Nevada Rock Art Foundation to assist with their needs and facilitate her own research goals.
