PhD project title: The Use of Maxillary Imaging as a Tool in Human Identification

Supervisors: Dr Matteo Borrini, Prof Joel D. Irish, Dr Alicia Ventresca Miller

Dr Teresa Runge is part of the Research Centre in Evolutionary Anthropology and Palaeoecology at the School of Biological and Environmental Sciences (Liverpool John Moores University).

In her PhD she successfully demonstrated the identification of human remains on maxillary sinus morphologies. Teresa's background is in Forensic Anthropology, Archaeology, and Biology. She is involved in numerous archaeological and anthropological projects and excavations and advanced her forensic anthropological and incident management knowledge by working as a team member for Kenyon International during multiple deployments.

Skills: Human Identification in a forensic and archaeological context, geometric morphometrics, facial reconstruction, forensic taphonomy, human osteology, trauma analyses, crime scene processing, administrative responsibilities, project management, Microsoft 365, Photoshop, change management, needs analyses, strategic planning, design and delivery of professional training
