Dr. Stefani Crabtree is a post doctoral scholar at the Human Environment Dynamics Laboratory at the Pennsylvania State University. Stefani received her BA from Scripps College in 2004 where she studied French, Theatre, and Anthropology, her M.A. in Anthropology from Washington State University (2013), her first Ph.D. in Anthropology from Washington State University (2016) and her second Ph.D. in Archéologie, Territoires et Environnement from the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme et l’Environnement at the Université Bourgogne Franche-Comté (2017). Stefani uses computational models, such as agent-based models and network analysis, to understand the archaeological past. The past is full of countless examples of resilience and vulnerability; to this aim we can calibrate our models of the present and the future on the archaeological past to better predict the success of our strategies, and adapt them for better human and ecosystem health.
