Katherine is working with a collaborative research team to investigate innovative methods for estimating the postmortem interval in human skeletal remains recovered from a forensic context through the examination of the decomposition process in bone under varying environmental conditions. She is also investigating craniofacial fluctuating asymmetry as a marker of developmental stress using geometric morphometric methods.
