President (he/him)

DAMON TARRANT

I am a fourth year archaeology honours student. Completing an extended minor in criminology, and a certificate in biological anthropology. I am most interested in bioarchaeology, forensic anthropology, and the application of stable isotope methods. I hope to study the applications of isotopes in forensic and archaeological contexts in post graduate studies. This is my third year with the ASS. 

 

Over the summer I was a student at the bioarchaeology field school with UNB at the Fortress of Louisbourg. That field school is where I learned that I really enjoy working in the field. In my free time I like to bake bread and play video games.

I am a fifth-year archaeology student pursuing a biology minor. I have been involved in the ASS since Fall 2019 and am most interested in museum studies, historical archaeology, and zooarch. As I will be graduating soon, I hope to set the ASS up for future success this term.

 

Over the summer, I was lucky enough to travel to Curaçao through the Environmental Archaeology field school. I currently work as a Heritage Interpreter at a National Historic Site. I have also worked with the collections at the Maritime Museum of B.C. In my free time, I love to sing with my acappella choir.

HENRY YANG

I am a fifth year archaeology major. I'm currently participating in the archaeology ambassadors program and am a AMA member. I'm particularly interested in Bronze and Iron Age settlements, specifically in the UK and China.

Why do I like achaeology?

I mean, who doesn't want to look at stuff from forever ago? It's like time travel. Kinda.

JULIAN GROLL

I’m a 2nd year archaeology major with interests in biological and medical anthropology, with the hopes of pursuing further education beyond a bachelor's degree with a focus in archaeobotany, and the prehistoric application of medicines. This is my first year with the Archaeological Student Society and I couldn’t be more excited!

 

As of right now, I have some field experience working with the Lil’wat nation excavating a pithouse site in Pemberton B.C., and I am currently a research assistant at Douglas College within the Department of Anthropology. When I don't have my head in a book, you can find me running most mornings, climbing outdoors with friends in the summer, and skiing through the winter.

I am a fifth year archaeology major also in the process of obtaining my certificate in cultural resource management. I have a general love for archaeology and I am planning on becoming a CRM archaeologist or working to get my Master’s degree once I graduate. This is my first year as part of the ASS, and I’m thrilled to be able to have a more active role in student life at SFU.  

 

I was driven towards archaeology because I love history and I love being outside, and there’s definitely something to say about holding a piece of ancient history in your hands. I really enjoy travelling and seeing new places, and I hope to someday visit every continent at least once.

I am a fourth year Archaeology major, Geography minor, GIS certificate, and CRM certificate. I am interested in underwater archaeology and ritual behaviour, especially human sacrifice. This is my second year in the ASS and I am looking forward to what this year has in store! 

 

This summer I participated in the Curacao Field School, Curacao Cultural Landscape Project, with SFU. I learned a lot about excavating and loved working in the field. I volunteer with the Faculty of Environment for first year events, such as Welcome Day and Paddling. In my free time, I like to bake, crochet, knit, and play music.

I am a fifth year archaeology and history major. I am also completing a certificate in Medieval and Renaissance Studies, and a Global Humanities minor. I am interested in classical archaeology and I hope to continue my studies focusing on the Roman empire and the influence of women in history. This is my second year in the ASS. 

 

Over the summer I participated in a field school in Pompeii through Mount Allison University. I worked on the Venus Pompeiana Project where I learned much about field techniques and realized how much I loved working in the field. In my free time I like playing DND, knitting, and baking.

KAYREEN DIZON

I’m a fourth-year archaeology major also working to complete a biological anthropology certificate. I have a broad, general interest in all things archaeology and am still trying to find an area in the discipline that I really connect with. This is my first year in the ASS and I’m looking forward to a memorable one!

 

I first became interested in archaeology when I realized how fascinating I found great, ancient civilizations and societies to be. Since then I’ve been eager to learn as much as I possibly could on past cultures around the world.

I have a dog named Skittles and enjoy reading in my spare time.

I’m a fourth-year archaeology major, and I am also completing the biological anthropology certificate. I have spent a term working in the Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology and volunteering in the archaeology labs this past year. I am currently working as a junior archaeologist in CRM and hope to continue after graduation before possibly returning for an MA. This is my first year with the ASS, and I am excited to work with everyone!

I have 2 cats, and I like to spend my free time going to bookstores, cafes, and concerts with my friends

NIKKI SIMON

Hello! I am a 4th-year Archaeology honours student with a minor in the Humanities and a certificate in Religious Studies. I am particularly interested in historical archaeology, specifically, memorialization of the dead and religious architecture and symbology. This year will be my third with the Archaeology Student Society.

 

I first became interested in becoming an archaeologist when I was in the 5th grade and never quite let that dream go. I have had the privilege of working at several archaeological sites across BC and in Scotland - led by truly singular individuals who have lifted me up and taught me much about myself and what archaeology is all about. In my free time (what free time?), I enjoy reading, gardening, hiking and long walks in the cemetery.

MADISON POOLE

I’m a fifth year archaeology major with a minor in humanities and a certificate in hellenic studies. I’m super interested in classical and feminist archaeology and I hope to go on to complete a masters degree in these topics. I also really enjoy working with museum collections! The past three summers I was the assistant museum curator at the Qualicum Beach Museum, where I had the opportunity to design exhibits, plan events and work with their collections. Last fall I also had the opportunity to participate in the field methods course and mock excavation at SFU. In my free time I enjoy hiking, cooking and spending time with friends.

Hi, I'm Levi. I'm a third year archaeology major and this is my first year in the ASS. I'm also currently working as a research assistant for Dana Lepofsky. I'm interested in archaeology of British Columbia, Britain, and Eastern Europe. After graduation. I'm looking forward to working in CRM around where I live on Tla'amin territory and I may pursue an MA in archaeology at SFU.

 

This summer I participated in a bioarchaeology field school in Poland, excavating a medieval cemetery. In my spare time, you can find me knitting a sweater, tattooing friends, or mudlarking on the River Thames.

I’m a second-year archaeology major and I’m experiencing my first year in the ASS! So many fields of Archaeology interest me, so I’m still figuring out which area I want to focus on. The ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica and Egypt gave me my passion and love for history and opened me up to the world of Archaeology. 

 

I have yet to get any fieldwork done, but I’m eager to learn and love the hands-on experience. Outside of everything you can find me riding my bike, playing some video games, or watching some random documentary I found on YouTube.

MINA PERRY

Hi! I’m a second year archaeology major and a first year transfer student at SFU. I am incredibly passionate about studying the migration patterns and cultural practices of Australian indigenous people and hope to pursue my masters and PHD in this area of the world. My ultimate goal is to become a professor of archaeology at a major research based university. 

 

Though I don’t have any prior experience in archaeological field work, I am confident and excited to be a part of this vibrant community. I hope to do my first field school or a term abroad in the coming years. In my free time I enjoy playing and watching rugby as well as playing Nintendo video games with my family and friends.

I’m a second year archaeology major, but this is my first year at SFU and as a member of ASS. I'm interested in both early medieval Europe and historical resilience to climate change, with plans to complete a masters after my degree. I haven’t had the opportunity to do any fieldwork yet, thanks COVID, but I'm hoping to change that soon! Outside of school you can find me playing rugby, hanging out with friends and playing video games.
