Research, teaching and consultations

I have research interests in bioarchaeology, archaeology and forensic anthropology. My chief focus centres on understanding ancient human biological responses to major lifeway shifts in Southeast Asia. My work in Japan, Cambodia, the Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam (in particular) has been funded from a number of sources, with the Chiang Ching-Kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange and Australian Research Council providing the bulk of support. A secondary research focus is elucidating the processes, patterning and rate of soft and hard tissue decomposition in a rage of media (surface, sub-surface, and aquatic) in order to develop more precise models for estimating human time since death in Australian conditions. Since coming to the ANU I have directly supervised 23 Honours; 13 Masters; and 6 PhD student completions in the areas of mortuary archaeology, bioarchaeology and forensic anthropology. I have written 35 forensic anthropological and archaeological reports for a range of local and federal government agencies over the past 5 years. In addition, and during the same period, I have volunteered 127 days to the Australian Defence Forces in the capacity of a forensic consultant.
