I received a B.S. in Anthropological Sciences with a minor if Forensic Sciences from The Ohio State University in 2016. In 2019, I earned my M.S. in forensic anthropology from Boston University's School of Medicine. My master’s thesis used dental measurements and morphological observations to assess differences and similarities between modern Japanese and Seminole Native American populations. For my dissertation, I would like to focus on prehistoric population migrations among and between Asiatic mainland populations and their neighboring islands.
Research interests: biological distance, migration patterns, population histories, Central, East, and Southeast Asia
