Rachel Kulick is an archaeologist, specializing in geoarchaeology, with a geographic focus in the Mediterranean region. Kulick's research focuses on human-environment interactions, sustainability, and resilience. Using geoarchaeology, she explores interdisciplinary connections between material culture, human activities, and past and present environments, analyzing archaeological and environmental data along with micro-contextual samples. This approach enables high-precision dating and microecological reconstructions to understand the social dynamics and environmental features of settlements. As a Research Affiliate with the Aegean Material Culture Laboratory, Kulick presently works with the Palace and Landscape at Palaikastro (PALAP) Project on Crete, and independently with the Kalavasos and Maroni Built-Environments (KAMBE) Project on Cyprus and the Pālehua Archaeology Project on Oahu, Hawaii. Kulick additionally volunteers with archaeological and museum entities, contributing to professional, public, and educational initiatives, notably serving as the Ontario Provincial Coordinator for the Society for American Archaeology's Public Education Committee since 2017. Kulick is formally trained in Art History and Aegean Archaeology (Ph.D., University of Toronto, 2017), Archaeological Sciences, specifically stable isotope analysis (MPhil, University of Cambridge, 2011), and Archaeology, including dendrochronology (BA, Cornell University, 2009). She has built her geoarchaeological expertise through study, research, and projects with various institutions, including the University of Tübingen, the British School at Athens, and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. Kulick has previously worked on archaeological projects in France, Italy, Ireland, and the United States (New York).
