Sean received his M.A. in Anthropology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and holds a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Northern-Colorado. His master’s thesis focused on a geospatial analysis of the Chacoan road system, clarifying potential use strategies of regional prehispanic roads. This work involved ideas and methods regarding predictive pathway modeling, legacy data, remote sensing, landscape analysis, and optimal movement strategies.

At Notre Dame, Sean intends to explore interregional relationships throughout the Southwest, particularly focusing on associations between Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde. His work aims to expand on both intended and consequential connections between these places, with a focus on motility, community development, and ceremonial landscapes. Sean is a Notre Dame Presidential Fellow.
