I was recently invited by St Mary MacKillop College in Canberra to deliver a community talk introducing methodological principles of forensic anthropology. This outreach event was over two days with me giving a Friday talk and students visiting our ANU labs on Monday to get hands on experience in identifying skeletal remains and solving forensic anthropology problems: file:///C:/Users/JustynaJ/Desktop/MacKillop_Newsletter_17_2018.pdf
My work on skeletal growth dynamics and insularity has been accepted for presentation as part of an invited symposium at the 2019 AAPAs in Cleveland, OH - very much looking forward to learning all about the recent advancements in the study of bone microstructure!

I am also contributing to two other presentations:
