Caitlin Doherty earned her B.A. in Anthropology from the University of San Diego in 2015.  Before arriving at Texas A&M, she participated in the Bethsaida Excavation Project in Israel for two years and worked for two years in cultural resource management in Southern California. She has also participated in laboratory research with lithic material from the C.W. Harris Site housed in the San Diego State University Archaeology Collections. In summer 2017, she joined Dr. Kelly Graf and the CSFA in excavating the McDonald Creek site, central Alaska. Her research interests include human behavioral ecology, particularly related to large-scale environmental change during the Late Pleistocene and early Holocene, and the lithic technologies, landscape use, and mobility of the First Americans.
