Dr. Emily Zavodny is an environmental archaeologist specializing in paleoecology, zooarchaeology, and stable isotope geochemistry. She received her MA and PhD from The Pennsylvania State University and BA from Wake Forest University. She is broadly interested in how prehistoric human and animal populations successfully adapted to uncertainty and risk posed by marginal landscapes, resource scarcity, and/or changing climate and environments. Her ongoing research examines the spread of agriculture and animal husbandry throughout southeast Europe and the long-term impact of these intensive practices on human behavior and local landscapes.
