My Master of Archaeological Science alumna has just had her first first-authored paper accepted in AJFS. Ashley Bridge did an anthropometric study of females in ACT and QLD, measuring their height and limb lengths to come up with new stature estimation methods from fleshed human body remains in forensic scenarios in Australia. Her new method will also be applicable to skeletal remains.

Thrilled to announce that an equipment grant application I led has been successful at securing 135,000.00 AUD towards a confocal laser scanning microscope! The lab is growing... The application was for our long term project collaboration with my ANU colleagues Dr Alison Behie and Professor Marc Oxenham investigating micro to nano level dental and bone structure in ancient humans and living apes and monkeys.
