After retiring from a 30 year career in Engineering at a multinational corporation I returned to school, receiving my PhD in 2014. My research is focused on human-environmental impacts, both ancient and modern. I study modern impacts within the field of Recreation Ecology—particularly impacts from camping, hiking and rock climbing in National Parks and Forests. In the area of ancient impacts, I use spatial analysis to examine Landscape Archaeology issues such as settlement pattern, agricultural potential and hydrology. I work primarily in the areas of the lowland Maya in Central America and in the American Southwest. For my full CV please follow the link: http://homepages.uc.edu/~carrcr/CV.htm
