Thesis title: Comparative Projectile Trauma: An Examination of the Differences in Skeletal Trauma Inflicted by Multiple Classifications of Projectile Weapons


I earned my BA in archaeology and BA in anthropology from the College of Wooster in 2015. Following this, I continued my studies, earning my MSc in forensic anthropology from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in 2016. Through my work in the master's program at UCLan, I began my research in trauma analysis and experimental studies, which I have continued to explore in my PhD research.
