I work part-time as program developer for the Alexandria Archive Institute, a non-profit which is working to provide innovative digital services for sharing research, thus filling the gaps in traditional publication. To this end, the AAI created Open Context—a free, open access resource for the electronic publication of primary field research from archaeology and related disciplines.

For more about my current academic endeavors, see my personal web site.

The Iraq War & Archaeology project:  for several years, I gathered, reviewed and commented on articles and information about the impact of the war on the archaeological remains in Iraq.  This site was intended for archaeologists, historians, scholars of the ancient world in general, policy makers, journalists as well as the general public.  Check out the full site archive from 2003 to 2006.
