Ph.D. Research

I am broadly interested in methods used for the analysis and identification of human skeletal remains. Particularly, how can these techniques be more inclusive of natural human variation so they become more robust during forensic investigations.

M.Med.Sc thesis

Intra-observer reproducibility of a new data collection methodology for the estimation of age at death based on the pelvis of human skeletal remains.
