Picture of Emily Schwalbe

Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a PhD candidate in the Anthropology department studying the underwater archaeology of South Carolina. Before coming to Northwestern I worked as a professional underwater archaeologist at Clemson University. Although I focus on a different region in my current research, Lake Michigan has an amazing number of shipwrecks and I am excited to investigate those as a part of SPLASH!
