His areas of expertise include the scientific study of human remains, the anatomy of the human skeleton, ancient diseases and hard tissue biology. His research has focused on developing new methods to investigate past human health using dental and skeletal tissues as indicators of age, disease, growth and development. He has also investigated past epidemics such as the Black Death and the Great Famine. He is an Honorary Senior Research Associate at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London and the Secretary of the Institute for Bioarchaeology.

President Elect, Co-Journal Editor:

Past President:

Dr. Heather J.H. Edgar

Dr. Edgar is Associate Professor of Anthropology and Curator of Human Osteology at the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology University of New Mexico. Her primary research interests are in relating cultural trends and historical events to population variation. She is also interested in the relationship between admixture and inequality, and in forensic applications of dental morphology. Her work has primarily focused on the U.S. and Mexico.

Co-Journal Editor:

Dr. G. Richard Scott

Dr. Scott is a professor at the University of Nevada, Reno. His research focuses on the dental anthropological analysis of medieval European populations, with special emphasis on analysis of nonmetric crown and root traits, dental pathology, stress and cultural behavior. He also performs continued research on the bioarchaeology of Alaskan Inuit and Greenlandic Norse populations.

Communications Officer:

Emma Lagan, M.A.

Ms. Lagan is a doctoral student at The Ohio State University studying dental anthropology with Dr. Debbie Guatelli-Steinberg. Ms. Lagan's primary area of interest is microwear in a bioarchaeological context. Ms. Lagan is a University Fellow, and a co-host for Seasons 2 and 3 of the podcast "A Story of Us."

Student Member: Emily Moes

Ms. Moes is a graduate student at the University of New Mexico in Evolutionary Anthropology. Her research focuses on the inter-generational impacts of structural violence in Colonial Mexico. Broadly, she is interested in growth and development, and how juvenile remains can inform us about early life stress and maternal environment.
