I take a great interest in language and social science. Growing up, I was educated in a bilingual institution (Spanish and English), but have taken to learning other languages at a university level, such as French and German. My interest in social sciences was fostered by my academic coursework as I completed my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. I achieved a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology with a concentration in Archaeology and Religious Studies at New York University and recently acquired a Master of Science in Zooarchaeology at the University of York (United Kingdom). My specialization in archaeological science has enabled me to learn a broad spectrum of topics that span from history to geochemistry, genetics, and biology. I am however a huge animal lover (hence the 'zoo' in zooarchaeology! Have you been brushing up on your Greek?).
Although I spend a significant amount of time in a trench or in the laboratory, one of my favorite aspects of academia is teaching, passing down the tomes of human knowledge to those who come after you. This is one reason why I highly value being able to teach and tutor. I would like for students to be as excited about these topics as I am! This requires being adaptable and perceptive in order to meet the student's needs as an instructor. I hope we can make a great team and achieve your academic goals.
