Ashley joined Far Western in 2018. She has worked as an archaeologist specializing in Great Basin prehistory for over a decade in academic, governmental, and CRM settings. She received her M.S. in 2011 and her Ph.D. in 2018 from the University of Utah, with a research emphasis exploring how ecological variation drives resource privatization and territorial land claims among hunter-gatherers. Her current research focuses on contemporary pine nut harvest rates in Nevada, hunter-gatherer fire use as landscape modification practice, and how archaeological and ethnographic data can be utilized in contemporary indigenous land claims.
