The Skeletal Biology and Forensic Anthropology Research Group conducts research in three main biological anthropology research areas: bioarchaeology, forensic anthropology, and biology of the human skeleton. Our research in bioarchaeology is primarily focused on Southeast-Asian and European populations, aiming to reconstruct ancient human lifeways, behaviour, health, and disease by studying human skeletal remains from archaeological contexts. Our forensic focus is on developing new and more accurate methods of identifying (e.g. estimating stature) recent human remains, and estimating time-since and manner of death. Finally, we study the anatomy, structure, variation, and metabolic processes involved in skeletal growth and function in humans and animal models, to further our current understanding of human skeletal biology. Our analyses combine macro- and microscopic technical approaches.
