Di Hu is an archaeologist whose work focuses on the Andes. In 2016, she received her Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley. She is currently working on a book titled Social Landscapes of Rebellion in the Late Colonial Andes, 1760–1840. Another of her projects is the analysis and experimental re-creation and use of Tiwanaku projectile points to shed light on state formation among the Tiwanaku, who lived in parts of present-day Bolivia, southern Peru, and northern Chile around 400–1000. She is also working to understand the social landscape of Vilcashuamán province just before it was conquered by the Incas, and she is attempting to figure out Native Andean migration patterns by analyzing colonial censuses. She is an avid flint knapper. Follow her on Twitter @dihuarchaeology.
