Emma received a B.A. in Anthropology and Biology from Miami University in 2018. In 2020, she earned a M.A. in Anthropology from The Ohio State University. Her thesis characterized sex differences in mechanical loading due to dominant limb use and, by extension, sexual division of labor in medieval Giecz, Poland while addressing intraskeletal relationships in both asymmetry and other activity-related skeletal changes.  She is interested in relating the process of functional adaptation to skeletal variation, particularly in bones with complex loading environments. Her dissertation research focuses on the human clavicle, where she will investigate how morphological and microstructural characteristics of this bone are organized and reflect response to mechanical loads.  

She works under Dr. Amanda Agnew and Dr. Randee Hunter in the Injury Biomechanics Research Center.  

Research interests: skeletal biomechanics, bone histology, loading history, skeletal structure and morphology
