Lindsay is collections manager for the Ceramic Technology Laboratory and Florida Archaeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History, and affiliate faculty in the Department of Anthropology. Her research focuses on craft production, trade, and exchange in historic and prehistoric contexts, examined through the lens of utilitarian ceramics. She has conducted analyses on collections from the southeastern U.S., Great Britain, and the Caribbean using a variety of methods including LA-ICP-MS and XRF to discover new information about these often visually generic artifacts. Currently, Lindsay is investigating the production of St. Johns pottery across peninsular Florida.
