I am an Andean archaeologist with a background in the prehistoric and historical archaeology of Peru. I'm currently running a project in Tacna (far southern Peru) that examines the long-term history of caravanning and provisioning through a high-altitude landscape. Focusing on the institution of the tambo – the Inca way station that formed a crucial part of the imperial road network – my research explores the transformations of local transport regimes in the context of state interventions, commodity booms, and new mercantile forces.
