I am a bioarchaeologist, forensic anthropologist, and Registered Professional Archaeologist (RPA) specializing in human osteology and archaeological sciences. I have surveyed and excavated archaeological sites, prehistoric burials, and historic cemeteries in the United States, the Caribbean, Peru, and Romania, and have conducted research in a variety of disciplines including biogeochemistry, morphometrics, and architectural analyses.
