Hello! My name is Erik Gjesfjeld and I am currently working at UCLA as a post-doctoral fellow in the Institute for Society and Genetics and as a lecturer in the Department of Anthropology. My current research builds from my training as an archaeologist to explore the evolution of cultural and technological diversity through the use of macroevolutionary models. I specialize in the archaeology of maritime hunter-gatherers with broader interests in human eco-dynamics, quantitative methods and archaeometry.
Please feel free to explore this website to find out a little more about me, my research, teaching and publications.
