Introduction
My research interests are in the area of skeletal histology, especially its applications to forensic anthropology, functional morphology, bioarchaeology, development, and bone biomechanics. I am investigating new methods for detecting variances in bone morphology to refine our understanding of the relationship between behavior, loading environment, function, and skeletal response.

Article
Full-text available
High-resolution computed tomography images were acquired for 31 proximal human tibiae, age 8 to 37.5 years, from Norris Farms #36 cemetery site (A.D. 1300). Morphometric analysis of subchondral cortical and trabecular bone architecture was performed between and within the tibial condyles. Kruskal-Wallis and Wilcoxon signed-rank tests were used to e...

Though the National Institute of Justice has recognized missing persons cases as “The Nation’s Silent Mass Disaster,” a lack of missing and unidentified repository data at both state and national levels continues to impact the identification of missing and unidentified people, and in particular BIPOC women (Ritter 2007). In April 2022, the National...
Article

The benefits of a diverse and inclusive working environment are well documented. This study examined forensic science literature, demographic data reported from professional organizations, and demographic surveys to compile information regarding racial and ethnic diversity within different subdisciplines of forensic science. Results showed that pra...

The objective of this study was to test the hypotheses that ontogenetic patterns of change in tibial subchondral trabecular and cortical bone microstructure are age and condyle site-specific due to differential loading associated with changing joint kinematics and body mass.

Understanding the developmental patterns of trabecular bone in the epiphyseal and metaphyseal regions of the proximal tibia.
Article
Histomorphometric studies have reported relations between osteon size and age; however, data focused on the shape of osteons is sparse. The purpose of this study was to determine how osteon circularity (On.Cr) varies with age in different skeletal elements. Regression analysis was used to evaluate the relationship between age and osteon shape and s...
Article
Histomorphometric and cross-sectional geometric studies of bone have provided valuable information about age at death, behavioral and activity patterns, and pathological conditions for past and present human populations. While a considerable amount of exploratory and applied research has been completed using histomorphometric and cross-sectional ge...
Conference Paper
The Forensic Anthropology Case Team (FACT) at The Ohio State University is a volunteer organization that serves the Ohio community by assisting law enforcement agencies, coroner’s offices, and local communities in searching for, recovering, and analyzing/identifying human remains. In March 2014 members of the FACT team, at the behest of local offic...
Article
  Although many variables that skeletal biologists examine have been standardized, the actual techniques used to collect these data from bone thin sections vary. This project compares different methods of obtaining data (relative cortical area values) for histomorphometric research. One visual and three digital methods of histomorphometric data col...
