I am a board-certified forensic anthropologist (D-ABFA) employed at the Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner trained in outdoor scene processing and the laboratory analysis of human remains. 

My previous research focused heavily on the estimation of adult age at death; however, I  am broadly interested in the use of technology to document outdoor crime scenes, the evaluation of forensic significance, and factors affecting variability in the human skeleton. My most recent
 research projects have focused on the evaluating the medicolegal significance of isolated skeletal finds, detection of clandestine graves using soil temperature and drone-based imaging, the use of ALS in outdoor pedestrian searches for human remains, and the estimation of adult age-at-death using the TA3 skeletal traits.
