Assistant Professor

Bioarchaeology, developmental stress, life history, evolutionary morphology, skeletal and dental biology, evolutionary theory, mortuary practices, hunter-gatherers

I earned my B.A. degree in anthropology with a minor in history (2001) from Arizona State University. I completed my Ph.D. in biological anthropology with a minor in anatomy (2007) at The Ohio State University. My research interests include developmental stress, life history, evolutionary morphology, skeletal and dental biology, evolutionary theory, and hunter-gatherers. I have worked with skeletal and dental remains from Japan, Siberia, Alaska, Florida, New Mexico, and Arizona.
