Research

While an undergraduate, I was intrigued by the theoretical relationship between places of death and the maintenance of power, examining the actions and role of the Catholic Church within Rome. At Boston University, my master’s research focused upon skeletal trauma, culminating in my thesis entitled Reciprocating Saws as Tools of Dismemberment: Analysis of Class Characteristics and Practical Utility. Broadly, my research interests include forensic anthropology; bioarchaeology; biocultural anthropology; skeletal trauma; taphonomy; human rights investigation; embodiment theory; cultural approaches to death, dying, and the body; and the role of the body in power relationships.
