Coordinating Editor the Topical Issue on Contextualising the Dead
I have a background in both human osteology and archaeological fieldwork. My research primarily focuses on patterns of decomposition, skeletal disarticulation, and taphonomy within funerary contexts, as a means to broaden our understanding of mortuary treatment and of funerary practices. Having undertaken a large part of my research in Peru, I am also interested in the biology and prehistory of past Andean populations.
I hold a BA in Anthropology from the University of Texas at El Paso (USA, 1998), an MA in Anthropology from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor (USA, 2000), a DEA (MSc; 2001) and a Doctorate in Biological Anthropology from the Université Bordeaux I, France (2007).
