Kenny is an anthropological archaeologist whose research concerned data from excavations at multiple sites in the Nepeña Valley on the north coast of Peru.  His research also includes foodways and foodstuffs, with foci in the river valleys of the Andes Mountains and in East Asia.  He was researching ceramic assemblages, macrofloral and macrofaunal ecofacts, and broader-scale environmental changes and settlement patterns as a doctoral student at LSU – when the COVID-19 pandemic interfered.
