Jade d’Alpoim Guedes is an environmental archaeologist and ethnobiologist whose geographic focus of research is southwest and northwest China. She employs an interdisciplinary research program to understand how humans adapted their foraging practices and agricultural strategies to new environments over the course of the past 10,000 years and have developed resilience in the face of climatic and social change. She employs a variety of different methodologies in her research, including archaeobotany, paleoclimate reconstruction and computational modeling, working primarily in the Sichuan, Yunnan and Gansu provinces and the Tibetan autonomous region. She is currently the lead principal investigator on an international collaboration project for archeological research in Jiuzhaigou National Park in southwestern China.
