ADRIAN S.Z. CHASE
Adrian S.Z. Chase is an anthropological archaeologist studying urbanism among the ancient Maya through the use of lidar data, excavated materials, and computational methods. Chase's body of work includes the study of reservoirs at the site of Caracol, Belize, with a focus on the computer analysis of lidar data in combination with archaeological data. His research at Caracol investigates ancient Maya urbanism, combining lidar and archaeological data to reconstruct and test neighborhoods, examine urban services and their provisioning, and analyze collective and autocratic governance. In addition to archaeological investigations at Caracol, Chase has participated in field research at Hirbemerdon Tepe in Turkey, and at Chichén Itza and Teotihuacan in Mexico.
Chase is a postdoctoral fellow with the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation and the Department of Anthropology at the University of Chicago.
