My specialty is anthropological archaeology and I do fieldwork in Jordan. I use archaeology to study how the local population has coped with over three millennia of imperial predation and domination. My research is centered at Tall Hisban (biblical Heshbon) where I have done fieldwork since 1971.

I am a biological anthropologist. I research the evolution of bipedality in our human ancestors, focusing on the comparative anatomy of the hip bones to answer the question: what factors shape the human pelvis? I also do paleoanthropological fieldwork in East and South Africa.

I am a graduate in Computer Science and Engineering. I look for traces of the absolute truth in layers of complex information created in space-time. I am a curious observer whose mind wanders the universe, back and forth, and soul tries to penetrate the vacuum inside. I am just a student of GOD.
