Sarah Clayton

My research is funded by the National Science Foundation, and last year I was awarded a Thomas Jefferson Grant from the French American Cultural Exchange Program under the “Make our Planet Great Again” initiative. This award supports my project “An archaeological and paleoenvironmental study of urban and agrarian sustainability in the Basin of Mexico,” which is a collaboration with colleagues at the Université Paris 1.
