Research Interests: 
Bioarchaeology, human osteology, community-based archaeology, islandscapes & hybrid geographies, population heritage, migration, landscape archaeology

My primary research foci are bioarchaeology, paleopathology, mortuary archaeology, forensics, Indigenous archaeology, NAGPRA & Repatriation, community-based archaeology, population histories, biological distance, migration, and social organization. I am interested in theorizing the concept of "insularity", migration in the Neolithic British isles, and in using bioarchaeological techniques and data to ask questions about islandscapes and Seascapes.
