Erin Baxter is a Ph.D. student who is interested in the role of Aztec Ruins complex (11th-13th century) with respect to Chaco Canyon and the political organization of the US Southwest. Erin is particularly interested in how geophysical tools and remote sensing can aid in archaeological research, particularly in the National Parks. The past two summers Erin worked at Aztec Ruins National Monument in northern New Mexico in preparation for a potential doctoral research in the summer of 2012.

Erin’s background is in non-profit archaeology and CRM, and she continues to be interested in making archaeology accessible to the interested public.
