Ian is originally from Pinckney Michigan, a small-town north of Ann Arbor. For his undergraduate education he attended Michigan State University, acquiring a dual degree in Anthropology and Geography. Throughout this time, his studies specialized in prehistoric and historic archaeology, including fieldwork throughout the Great Lakes region as well as South Africa and Botswana. Following this, Ian obtained his MA in Maritime History from East Carolina University. Continuing with his studies of historic archaeology, Ian participated in several colonial-era shipwreck surveys throughout North Carolina, Costa Rica, Bermuda, South Africa, and Tanzania, while his MA thesis research focused on the preservation of derelict WWII structures on the South African coast. As part of the Public History PhD program at NCSU, Ian hopes to combine this background in field research with the training in outreach and community engagement that will enable him to better understand and preserve at-risk heritage.  Ian will be teaching HI:253 Early American History during the Fall 2019 Semester.
