With a background in bioarchaeology and geometric morphometrics, my current research focuses on age-related changes in bone density and cortical bone shape using pQCT (peripheral quantitative computed tomography) imaging among living humans. In addition to my anthropological research, I also have extensive teaching experience in human anatomy for undergraduate, graduate, and medical professional students.
