Matt is a graduate student at the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World interested primarily in the eastern Mediterranean during the Late Prehistoic through to the early Classical period. In his developing research, Matt intends to employ paleoclimate and paleoenvironmental reconstructions drawn from pollen, sediment, and speleothem data to understand how humans shaped – and were in turn shaped by – the evolving agricultural landscape of the rural Peloponnese, Greece. Generally, Matt is interested in historical-ecological trends in landuse, resource management and development, and mobility in alpine regions and he hopes to highlight through his research how environmental and climate changes affected certain socio-economic structures in antiquity.
