Jonathan Paige

Postdoctoral Fellow

I am a post-doctoral Researcher in the Department of Anthropology at Mizzou. I was awarded my Ph.D from Arizona State University’s Institute of Human Origins, 2022.  My research focuses on theoretically informed, computational approaches to studying technological and behavioral change across narrow to vast spatio-temporal scales. I am interested in the causes and evolutionary consequences of cultural evolution in human societies, and developing tools to perform large scale comparative analysis of archaeological sites.
