BiographyJoined FSC in 2015
Areas of Research and Teaching Expertise:
My primary area of research is the analysis human remains from archaeological sites, specifically looking at skeletal and dental pathology as they relate to the diet, cultural practices, and the elevated risk of specific segments of a given population. I currently work with skeletal remains the Roman Period (1st-6th century CE) and with Pre-Columbian and Historic British Navy skeletal remains from Antigua, West Indies. In addition to ancient human remains I have also worked with forensic material.
I currently carry out archaeological field work in Antigua in cooperation with Antigua National Parks and California State University (Chico).
I have taught courses in skeletal pathology, bioarchaeology, archaeology and forensic anthropology, in addition to introductory courses in anthropology.
