Research student

I'm a dental anthropologist and bioarchaeologist, specialising in the analysis of human remains. Teeth are my main research focus; my current project utilises dental morphology and metrics to investigate population affinity from the Iron Age to Early Medieval Period in Wessex (England). I am practised in techniques of isotope analysis for investigations of diet and geographic origins, with ongoing collaborations with other universities and commerical archaeology companies. I'm also interested in methodological studies, interrogating and developing the techniques used for analysing human remains. Currently, I have the privilege of being the Student Representative for the British Association for Biological Anthropology and Osteoarchaeology.
