Her current work is focused on comparative archaeology of the Spanish borderlands of the Southeastern U.S. and the Gulf Lowlands of Mesoamerica (Mexico).

She specializes in the application of archaeological science to the study of ceramic technology, as well as quantitative methods and analysis of colonial period documents.
