I am a bioarchaeologist researching population change, human variation, admixture, and the in-between lives,deaths, and identities of past and modern people.
I sub-specialize in the analysis of fragmentary and commingled human remains.
I am currently studying the Iron Age peoples in Croatia and the Adriatic, and their Romanization. I use methods developed from quantitative genetic theories combined with known history to contextualize with biology the changing identities and ethnogenesis in the region.
My service work prioritizes ethical research practices, the dismantling of scientific racism, and diversity and representation in biological anthropology, particularly supporting Black and non-traditional students in academia, NAGPRA, and ethical collections practises.
