I am a forensic anthropologist interested in perceptions of social race, and the use of biogeographic ancestry in both forensic investigations and the practice of forensic anthropology. I'm particularly interested in how information drawn from skeletal remains, can impact the identification process of that person, namely method applications/standardization, casework accuracy, and method outcome interpretations. I am the deputy forensic anthropologist for Champaign County Coroner's Office, and serve the surrounding counties as needed when human skeletal remains are found.
