My research applies advances in bioarcheological techniques to examine the skeletal remains of a group of 19th-century migrant settlers to South Australia. A multi-methodological approach, including the investigation of historical records associated with emigrant ships, and the economic/ social issues in the new colony. This allows a more in-depth understanding of their oral and systemic health challenges. I value the use of interdisciplinary methods and collaborations to provide a broader methodological application which can yield fresh insight into the life histories of previously unknown individuals and enrich our understanding of the early decades of the South Australian colony.

I am particularly interested in dental developmental defects that can represent the occurrence of one or more health insults during infancy to early adulthood.

Areas of interest: Paleoimaging, Bioarchaeology, Dental Anthropology, Paleopathology, and Social History.
