About Lara

Research-wise, I am interested in age-associated bone loss through an evolutionary perspective; in particular, the role of subsistence and nutrition in bone "health" among ancient populations. I am a skeletal biologist and forensic anthropologist with specialty training in hard-tissue histology and multiple microscopic techniques. I have over 13 years of experience with crime scene recoveries and am a skilled archaeologist with experience recovering remains from a variety of contexts such as airplane crashes, building fires, and car accidents. I am skilled in laboratory analysis of skeletal remains and trained in both macroscopic and microscopic methods of determining a biological profile and able to provide expert testimony. I have collaborated with a number of law enforcement agencies, coroners and medical examiners in 6 states.I am also skilled with quantitative analysis (univariate and multivariate procedures) and with coding statistical programs using SAS.

I have twenty years of experience in Anthropology.
16 years of experience teaching, 16 years of experience with forensic anthropology. I am also a skilled archaeologist and have taught introductory and upper level courses in all 4 subfields of anthropology.

I am also a skilled writer and have taught high school biology and general science to junior high students
