Research Interests

My research explores the cellular and biochemical properties of bone tissue to locate the best places to get DNA during forensic anthropological investigations. This research offers increased accuracy of forensic DNA analyses in an effort to aid law enforcement and other forensic experts in identifying unknown human remains in both active and "cold" cases.
