Dr. Satoru Murata,
Director of Survey and Mapping

Dr. Satoru Murata is the Director of Survey and Mapping for BREA. He is bilingual in Japanese and English, and has a B.S. from Kyoto University in Japan in astrophysics, and a B.A. in anthropology/archaeology from State University of New York, Stony Brook. His Ph.D. work at Boston University brought him to Belize, where he conducted research at what turned out to be the first specialized pottery production site to be documented in the Maya lowlands. Dr. Murata is interested in craft production and ancient technologies, but he is also invested in modern technologies that enable and empower archaeological research, such as remote sensing, geographic information systems, database management and other computer-aided fieldwork. He has been with the BREA team since its inception in January 2011.
