Elise Laugier is an environmental archaeologist interested in the role of agriculture in the emergence and maintenance of cities, states, and empires, particularly in Southwest Asia. Her research investigates the complex interplay between past agricultural economies and local environments, focusing on the legacy effects (ecological inheritances) of human landscape modification and the development of new approaches to quantify past land use. Her work integrates a variety of approaches ranging from satellite remote sensing to the analysis of microbotanical remains.
