Kacey Grauer is a doctoral candidate at Northwestern University. She is a paleoethnobotanist who uses microbotanical analysis to study human-environment relationships. Her research interests are political ecology, ontologies, materiality, landscape, and archaeology. Kacey has been conducting archaeological research in Belize for 9 years, the last 5 of which have spent on the Aventura Archaeology Project. Kacey joins us in the Penn Paleoecology Lab to learn pollen analysis.
