I have a B.A. in biological anthropology from the University of Maryland. I was the commencement speaker at the University of Maryland and a finalist for the University Medal. Despite focusing on physical anthropology in general, I consider myself a forensic anthropologist. My specific research interests are determining and documenting post-mortem interval changes in human remains the PA, NJ, DE region taking into consideration environmental conditions and taphonomic factors. In addition, I am interested in exploring new 3D computer-based forensic facial reconstruction methods, and as well as determining new chronological aging methods.
