Jennifer Sharman

Newsletter Editor

(2014-2016)

My main research interests lie in human osteology, human variation, paleodemography and paleopathology. I am interested in the health status and disease of past populations, and the interrelationship of disease with socioeconomic factors. I finished my PhD at Durham University (UK) in late 2013, where my research explored the variation in rates of human skeletal aging and expression of sexual dimorphism by analyzing skeletons from six documented collections in Canada, England, Portugal and South Africa. I have worked also worked as a freelance editor and proofreader, and am pleased to bring that experience and my passion for biological anthropology to the role of Newsletter Editor for the next few years.
