Juan Carlos Jarquin is a second-year M.A. student in archaeology, focusing on hunter-gatherer lifeways in the Great Basin with particular attention on the Late Holocene. His background ranges from conducting archaeological fieldwork with federal agencies across the U.S., in Everglades National Park to the Bureau of Land Management in Lakeview, OR, and in private sector cultural resources management. Juan Carlos' research interests are using GIS for spatial analysis, the relationship between hunter-gatherer settlement patterns and paleoenvironmental change and Section 106 compliance processes in federal archaeology.
