My previous research focused on post-burial time estimation and the accuracy of identification of human remains using ligament attachment sites when developing the biological profile in forensic cases. I am currently focused on biological matter, such as cadavers, instead of virtual dissection (computer-generated model) in anatomy labs, comparative anatomy between rabbits and humans, and the importance of interdisciplinary cooperation between anthropology and other fields, specifically biology and criminal justice.

Interests: Biological anthropology, criminal justice, human anatomy, forensics
