Loren Clark is a fourth year doctoral student in anthropology at UC San Diego under the supervision of Dra. Isabel Rivera-Collazo. Her focus is submerged prehistoric landscapes in the eastern Mediterranean, and she is working through the Human Ecology Lab as well as with the Scripps Center for Marine Archaeology. After completing BA's in Classical Civilizations and Anthropology at Indiana University, Loren participated in multiple underwater and land excavations on shipwrecks in and around the Southeastern US. She then continued on to complete a Masters of Science in Maritime Archaeology from the University of Southampton where she focused on submerged prehistoric landscapes, sea-level change, and tectonics along the Albanian coastline. Prior to joining the UCSD family, Loren spent the majority of her career in cultural resource management working with a myriad of both land and maritime sites. She is particularly interested in using her experience from CRM to continue a multidisciplinary approach to maritime archaeology in the Mediterranean.
