Jennifer Green

Doctoral Candidate


Jennifer received both her B.A. and M.A. in Anthropology from Florida Atlantic University. She has worked on archaeological sites throughout south Florida and the broader Southeastern United States over the past decade including a field school in coastal Ecuador.

While attending FAU, Jennifer was appointed a two-year position as a graduate assistant for the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN). At FPAN she worked throughout southern Florida to promote and facilitate the conservation, study, and public understanding of Florida’s archaeological heritage.

Her current doctoral research explores faunal subsistence use from Everglades tree islands during the Late Archaic to Woodland transition to understand the dynamics of social behavior, mobility, and changes in hydrology across the landscape.  

Jennifer is a member of the Register of Professional Archaeologists, Society for American Archaeology, Southeastern Archaeology Conference, and Lambda Alpha National Anthropology Honor Society.
