Andrew Gillreath-Brown, PhD Candidate, RPA

I am a computational archaeologist interested in how individuals and groups respond to both large scale processes such as climate change and local processes such as violence and wealth inequality. I am currently a PhD Candidate in the Department of Anthropology at Washington State University.

I am also an Editorial Assistant for Ethnobiology Letters (EBL) of the Society for Ethnobiology. At Washington State University, I serve as a senator and a legislative committee member for the Graduate and Professional Student Association and the treasurer and webmaster for the Anthropology Graduate Organization. I also serve as a Government Affairs Network State Representative (GANSR) of the Society for American Archaeology for Tennessee and am a legislative committee member for the Tennessee Council for Professional Archaeology.

At WSU, I am a graduate research assistant on the Synthesizing Knowledge of Past Environments (SKOPE) project. I have been working on producing a low-frequency temperature reconstruction of the Upland United States Southwest using pollen data. On another project and as a member of the WSU Historic Preservation committee, I built a website, Washington State University Buildings and Landscapes, to share the history of the WSU Pullman campus. The site is meant to allow people to connect or even reconnect with the campus, as well as to be a teaching and learning tool. We also hope for students to be able to contribute information, as well as crowdsource photos and oral histories of campus and campus life in the future.
