Department of Archaeology



I completed my masters in anthropology in 2019 at McMaster University in Canada. My research considered the intersection of geography, urbanisation, funerary treatment, age, and sex on fracture rates in 1st – 8th c. CE Roman settlements. Additionally, during my masters, I was part of a team that looked at vitamin D deficiency and migration in Roman Period Switzerland. I’ve been lucky to participate in excavations in Canada as well as Italy.

In my undergraduate at the University of Victoria (Canada), I completed joint degrees in sociology and anthropology, focusing on both sociological theory and osteology.


My current PhD considers the discourse between sex and gender in skeletal analysis. Delving into osteotheory, I will be examining how we sex bodies along a sex/gender binary and what that means to the production of bioarchaeological research.
