Associate Curator of Anthropology/NAGPRA Coordinator - Natural History Museum Los Angeles County
Amy is an archaeologist who researches human-environmental dynamics, the development of maritime societies, peopling of the Americas, and maritime cultural landscapes. She uses both terrestrial and underwater archaeological methods. Amy earned her B.A. from Seton Hall University, and M.A. and Ph.D. from University of California, Santa Barbara.
Associate Professor of Geological Sciences - San Diego State University
Jillian is a marine geologist who researches marine geohazards and how aquatic environments have changed over time. She earned her B.S. from University of Southern California and her Ph.D. from Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
Distinguished Professor of Geophysics - University of California San Diego
Steven is a professor of geophysics at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He is a world leader in the use of electromagnetic methods to study seafloor geological structure, a field he has worked in for 37 years while at Scripps. He earned a Ph.D. from the Research School of Earth Sciences, Australian National University.
Assistant Professor of Geology – University of North Carolina, Wilmington
Shannon is a marine geologist who researches continental margin evolution during the late Quaternary Period and the impacts of processes such as sea level fluctuations, tectonics, and climate. She earned a B.S. from Coastal Carolina University and M.S. and Ph.D. from Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
Professor of Anthropological Archaeology - San Diego State University
Todd is an archaeologist specializing in long-term human-environmental interactions, the archaeology of maritime societies, historical ecological approaches to understanding coastal hunter-gatherer-fishers, and the peopling of the New World. He earned his B.A. from Beloit College, M.A. from the University of Florida, and Ph.D. from the University of Oregon.
Emeritus Professor of Anthropology/Director of the Museum of Natural & Cultural History - University of Oregon
Jon is an archaeologist who has written or edited more than 20 books and published more than 300 scholarly articles. He also served as the founding co-editor of the Journal of Island & Coastal Archaeology. Although his field research has focused on the archaeology and historical ecology of the Pacific Coast of North America, Jon’s broader interests revolve around the deep history of maritime cultures and island and coastal environments worldwide, including coastal dispersals in human history, the development of maritime technologies, submerged cultural landscapes, and human impacts on ancient fisheries and ecosystems. In 2013 he was elected as a fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.
Postdoctoral Scholar - Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Roslynn is a postdoctoral scholar at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, currently working with Dr. Jillian Maloney and Dr. Steven Constable. She is a recent graduate from the joint Ph.D. program in marine geophysics from Scripps Institution of Oceanography and San Diego State University. Her research interests include the development and use of controlled-source electromagnetic methods toward identifying and studying possible resources and hazards, either anthropogenic or natural in origin, that are submerged offshore. Roslynn earned a B.S. in Geological Engineering from Colorado School of Mines.
Ph.D. Candidate - Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Margaret Morris is a Ph.D. candidate at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography working with Isabel Rivera-Collazo and John Hildebrand. She is interested in the application and improvement of acoustic remote sensing methods used to map underwater landscapes and identify archaeological sites. Margaret earned a B.S. in Physics and Mathematics from Brandeis University.
