Research Focus

My current interests are focused on skeletal trauma, specifically the link between fracture characteristics and injury mechanisms.  This area of study is relevant across scientific fields, including forensic anthropology, injury biomechanics, and the medico-legal community.  My other research interests include injury severity assessment, forensic anthropological method evaluation and development, skeletal biology, human identification, and bone histology.  Additionally, I provide forensic anthropological consultations for local, state, and national agencies, which includes search and recovery, human identification through the development of a biological profile, and skeletal trauma analysis.
