Dr. Antoine is the British Museum’s Curator of Physical Anthropology, with responsibility for the Museum’s human remains. 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.

Executive Board Member/Co-Journal Editor: 

Dr. Marin Pilloud

 

Dr. Pilloud is currently an assistant professor at the University of Nevada, Reno and is a board certified forensic anthropologist.  Her research is broadly focused on the application of dental morphology and metrics to answering research questions in both bioarchaeology and forensic anthropology.

Secretary-Treasurer: 

Dr. Amelia Hubbard 

Dr. Hubbard is a professor at Wright State University. Dr. Hubbard's research is focused on using dental and genetic variation to interpret populations in prehistoric Kenya. 

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: 

Mackie O'Hara, M.A. 

Ms. O'Hara is a doctoral student at The Ohio State University studying dental anthropology with Dr. Debbie Guatelli-Steinberg. Ms. O'Hara's primary area of interest is the underlying growth and development mechanisms of enamel thickness. Her dissertation project focuses on enamel thickness, its development, and patterning in Homo naledi and modern humans. Ms. O'Hara is a NSF Graduate Research Fellow and also serves as the Executive Manager for the A Story of Us podcast series.
