Dr. Colin Grier is an Associate Professor of Archaeology at Arizona State University. His research interests include Northwest Coast of North America; Korean Peninsula and Pacific Rim; complex hunter-gatherers; social inequality; agency theory and political economy; quantitative and spatial analysis; GIS; zooarchaeology; aDNA and stable isotopes.

His archaeological research on the Northwest Coast of North America centers on investigating the economic organization, social institutions and political economy of precontact complex hunter-gatherers. Much of this research takes place in the Salish Sea in southwestern British Columbia, the traditional territory of Coast Salish peoples, looking into the relationship between the development of large households, village formation, social inequality, resource ownership and intensive storage economies.
