Nicholas is a staff archaeologist based at CRA’s headquarters in Lexington, KY. He holds a master’s degree in archaeology with concentrations in North American archaeology and Native American and Indigenous studies and holds a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley. Nicholas’ main interests in archaeology revolve around applying GIS in spatial analysis, and creating models to understand human movement through historical landscapes, especially human movement via waterways. Nicholas has contributed to projects in California, Texas, New York, and now Kentucky, from pre-Colombian sites to archaeology of the contemporary past. Some of his favorite projects have been at the Fort Davis National Historic Site in Fort Davis, TX, the Samuel Adams Lime Kiln in Wilder Ranch State Park, Santa Cruz, CA, and the Weimar Joint Sanatorium project in Weimar, CA. He has also worked with materials from Indigenous Seneca sites in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Outside of archaeology, Nicholas is a fan of horror and sci-fi, art and design, photography, tennis, and travel.
