I am a forensic anthropologist trained in outdoor scene processing and the laboratory analysis of human remains. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Forensic Investigation in the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Dept. of Criminal Justice and Social Sciences.
As a researcher, I am broadly interested in the factors affecting variability in the human skeleton, as well as methods for effective identification and processing of outdoor scenes. I have worked with more than 5,000 modern, historic and archaeological skeletons from many of the world’s well-documented collections, both individually and as part of an international research team. I also have several ongoing projects related to pedestrian searches and the identification of clandestine graves.
Note: I am not accepting graduate students in my new position, but am I interested in advising and collaborating on projects related to my research areas for students at other institutions. I also have a number of research opportunities for undergrad students at UW-Platteville. Please contact me to discuss how we can work together!
