Biography: Stephen (Joey) is a third-year master's student studying the prehistoric lifeways of the middle and late Archaic occupants in the High Rock Country/Black Rock Desert of northwestern Nevada. During his bachelor's studies, he conducted fieldwork on a southern plantation site in South Carolina and an early Paleolithic site in South Africa. Finding a middle ground, he studies prehistory in the Great Basin, where he employs lithic analyses and source provenance studies to understand mobility and lithic reduction practices during the late Holocene.
Joey is currently a member of the Great Basin Paleoindian Research Unit (GBPRU) at UNR and related fieldwork experience includes survey and excavation in Oregon, Nevada, California, and Utah.
