Research description: Dr. Moore has served as the Associate Dean of the Honors College since July 2022. Professor Moore's research in human skeletal biology ranges from forensic anthropology and biomedical anthropology of modern Americans to bioarchaeology of ancient populations in France and Turkey. She has led EMU students at bioarchaeological field schools in Northern France to analyze skeletons from an early medieval cemetery and in southern Turkey to analyze human cremains from a late Roman/early Byzantine site. Her recent research explores sexual polymorphism and conditions of intersex, which was inspired by her analysis of the remains of the Revolutionary War general, Casimir Pulaski. She contributed ground-breaking work in body mass estimation and the effects of obesity on the skeleton. She has taught several forensic anthropology short courses in Bogota, Colombia working for the International Criminal Investigative Training and Assistance Program (ICITAP) to train Colombian forensic professionals. She previously served as the coordinator of a medical imaging project, which conducted computed tomographic (CT) scans of over 600 modern donated skeletons from Tennessee and New Mexico. Before that, she worked with the Physicians for Human Rights in Cyprus as a forensic anthropologist to identify and repatriate remains from the 1974 war in Cyprus. Additionally, she has worked on archaeological teams in Cyprus, Arizona, and conducted CRM work in Ohio and Tennessee. She currently serves as the Forensic Anthropology Consultant for the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office in Detroit and for Washtenaw and Monroe counties in southeast Michigan.
