Human Osteology is an immensely stimulating and dynamic field. There are so many fascinating paths to walk and questions to ask. I enjoy piecing facts and people together from the broad how and why we move and grow, to unveiling the life-course of an individual, sharing each bump and scrape they took along the way. My special passion is for the molecular make-up of homo sapiens and hostile microorganisms and how this can be used to understand movement through space and time.
I have had the opportunity to visit other institutions such as the Universities of Winchester and Surrey as part of research oriented and experience garnering projects. At Winchester, I was allowed access to skeletal remains with lesions associated with leprosy and was then privileged to spend a week at Surrey receiving instruction in the analysis of ancient pathogen DNA. These have been rare and valuable experiences for which I am extremely grateful.
