Dr Jarvis Hayman
Continuing research is based on a Ph.D. thesis completed last year in which was detailed a method of determining the time since death in human bodies found decomposed in Australian conditions up to 14 days after death. Most methods are only able to estimate the time since death up to about 2 to 3 days.
It is important to publish the results of this research in the scientific literature. Further research is required in order to ascertain if it is possible to incorporate the major factors affecting human decomposition in a formula, so that the length of time that the estimation of the time since death can be determined, can be increased.

Dr Heloisa Mariath
Dr. Mariath is interested in the development of obligatory bipedalism as one of the key adaptations of the human lineage within the broad path of human evolution.  From the beginning of this century a number of new fossil specimens have been described significantly increasing the number of species and specimens accessible for study.  Dr Mariath is proposing to examine and re-analyse the available data on the hominid tarsal and metatarsal bones including the often neglected information on enthuses in order to shed light on the sometimes unclear aspects of human bipedal evolution.

Dr. Mariath is seeking a visiting fellowship at the ANU with the aim of preparing a robust research proposal for the Australian Research Council to review the evolution of human bipedalism.  From her research to date, it appears that discussion in the literature is sometimes specimen/species focused and an overarching analysis including the more recently discovered species and additional specimens of already studied species does not seem to have yet been undertaken.
