Background and Research Interests

Paulette conducted her doctoral research under the auspices of the Laboratory of Southeastern Archaeology while at the University of Florida. Her geoarchaeological research focused on reconstructing a chronology of sea-level rise and coastal evolution in Horseshoe Cove on the northern Gulf Coast of Florida as a means to investigate the effect of environmental change on human-landscape relationships at associated archaeological sites.

Current Research

After earning her Ph.D., Paulette joined the Florida Museum of Natural History as a postdoctoral associate where she is collaborating with Neill J. Wallis on the Horseshoe Cove Survey. This project expands upon Paulette’s previous research in Horseshoe Cove and seeks to create a more complete history of environmental change and human occupation in this area of the coast through additional coring and testing at archaeological sites.
