Erich C. Fisher is a post-doctoral researcher at Arizona State University. He received his PhD in archaeology from the University of Florida in 2010 and he specializes in African Stone Age archaeology, 3D GIS, and archaeoinformatics. Equal parts field archaeologist and computer nerd, Erich spends half his time canvasing coastal South Africa and half his time developing empirical 3D models to test complex interdisciplinary research questions in paleoanthropology. He is also the co-field director for the SACP4 project, which is studying the Origins of Modern Humans in coastal South Africa, and he also directs the P5 project, which is studying the origins of coastal foraging in Pondoland, South Africa.
