Alexis is a PhD student in the Anthropology department. She specializes in zooarchaeological research, which uses animal bones as the material culture through which to understand the intersections between the environment, food, identity, and social hierarchy on colonial Caribbean plantations and forts. When not in the GWRC, she can usually be found in the lab with boxes of bones or has dug herself into a hole somewhere in the world. She also likes to stay active by running, climbing, practicing yoga, hiking, and sailing with her fiancé.
