Research

My research takes a population approach to study variation in aging, growth, and development as it is applied to facial recognition, human identification, demography, and trauma analysis. Demography is important for interpreting human variation and is increasingly becoming an important tool for the strategy of both Prosecutors and Defense lawyers in genocide and war crime trials. As an applied biological anthropologist, I am interested in both the underlying skeletal biology and variation of populations and the ways in which such information is used to enforce human rights through transitional justice initiatives, such as international criminal trials.
