Alyssa's Expedition to Cambodia

Current Location

Siem Reap, Cambodia

My name is Alyssa, and I'm a space archeologist! I'm living in Cambodia, conducting research on the archaeology that I’ve spent the last year mapping with satellite imagery. Join me on this adventure!


Join me on my journey to Koh Ker this week. I got to meet some amazing Khmer archaeologists, encounter some creepy critters, scan a bunch of archaeological sites, and climb an ancient temple!


I've had a great time sharing my fieldwork and experiences in Cambodia with you! Before I sign off, here's a bit about what I've learned and where I'm headed next.

Field Notes

Cambodia has a rich cultural heritage, and we have only scratched the surface of what there is to know! It is important to preserve what we do know so that we can continue to learn from it.


At the end of an inspiring virtual exchange expedition, Alyssa joins our partners at Exploring By The Seat Of Your Pants for a final video call from Siem Reap.
