Hi, my name is Brittany Mistretta. I received my Ph.D. in 2021 from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Florida and affiliated archaeology programs at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Archaeology and natural history museum collections are invaluable to my research, which draws on human behavioral ecology, biodiversity studies, and zooarchaeological analysis to examine how people in the Caribbean interacted with animals and the environment during precolonial periods. My research also integrates 3D printing of cultural heritage materials as mechanisms for outreach and education.

Please take a look around! Feel free to contact me if you have questions, comments, or an interest in collaborating.
