Lauren is a social bioarchaeologist with interests in skeletal approaches to embodied experiences of identity and social change. Broadly, her interests also include skeletal plasticity and the life course, paleopathology, materiality, religion and the body, and mortuary archaeology. Her research integrates skeletal analysis with the study of material culture and historical narratives to address the interactions between human bodies and their broader social, cultural, and physical environments. She is currently examining diet and mobility in early medieval Central Europe through the lens of stable isotopes, skeletal dental analysis, and archaeological data.
