Professional Interests

Bioarchaeology, paleopathology, skeletal biology, evolution of infectious disease, epidemiological transitions, bioarchaeology of social identity, early modern English bioarchaeology, gender studies.

My research centers on the bio-social determinants of health inequalities among past populations, with a particular focus on social identity and gender, and on the evolution of infectious disease, with a focus on syphilis and the treponematoses. I am associated with ongoing bioarcheological research projects in the UK, Mongolia, and St. Croix.
