For my Master's research, I collected postcranial skeletal data on Hispanic individuals who were determined to be border crossing fatalities from the U.S.-Mexico border at the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner in Tucson, Arizona. I used this data to estimate which postcranial skeletal elements and individual measurements were the most accurate when estimating the sex of Hispanic individuals, specifically those from Mexico. My current research interests continue to include human biological variation, specifically the metric analysis and variation of human skeletal remains, and the identification of individuals considered Hispanic.
