Grace Kilroy

PhD Student


My name is Grace Kilroy, I'm from southern New Hampshire, about an hour outside of Boston. In 2017, I completed my undergraduate degree at SUNY Binghamton in Biological Anthropology with a minor in Biology. This past May, I finished my Master's at Boston University School of Medicine in Forensic Anthropology, where my thesis looked at secular change in nonmetric traits of the cranium and mandible. My current research interests are focused on morphological variation, skeletal growth and development, and the underlying biological mechanisms. In my free time, I love being outdoors and going on adventures with my dog. I'm really excited about this next chapter, and I can't wait to get to know all of the incoming and current students at UTK!
