Profil et bibliographie / Profile and Bibliography
I have taught (at adjunct level) at Weber State University, Ogden, Utah (USA) since 2010; and in the past four years have taught face-to-face, online and hybrid courses. My geographic area of focus is European, and literally all of my post-graduate schooling took place in Europe (UK). I have successfully co-led several international study abroad programs for Weber State. I have strong interests in applied anthropology, specifically osteology and forensic anthropology (my Masters Thesis was an osteological survey of mid-bronze age human mandibles from South Wales).
