Research Professor, Archaeology

Professional Interests

Dr. Rhode is a prehistorian, archaeobotanist, and paleoecologist with 40years experience throughout western North America. His main focus of research concerns prehistoric human adaptations and paleoenvironmental change in arid environments. Towards this end, he has analyzed packrat middens and pollen from various paleoenvironmental locales, examined plant remains from various archaeological sites throughout western North America, and studied starch granules and pollenfrom archaeological sites and artifacts. In addition to his paleoenvironmental research, Dr. Rhode has directed severallarge archaeological programs for the US Department of Defense and Department of Energy. Since 2001, he has also developed a research program in the Tibetan Plateau of western China with colleagues Jeff Brantingham (UCLA), David Madsen (U Texas), John Olsen (U Arizona) and Charles Perreault (ASU).
