Raven Garvey studies the influences of ecological, demographic, and social factors on Holocene hunter-gatherers’ behaviors and broader cultural change through time. Her current field projects in farthest southern South America–Patagonia–combine archaeological data with evolutionary modeling to address questions at the intersection of human behavioral ecology and cultural transmission theory. Her current lab-based projects are designed to test and develop models of cultural transmission and technological evolution, and she was awarded a fellowship from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (2022-2023) to train in engineering and explore the the effects of wind on hunter-gatherers’ livelihoods and technologies.
