Emma received her PhD from the University of Queensland where she focused on zooarchaeology, taphonomy, and palaeoanthropology. She has an extensive fieldwork history with excavations across Australia, Europe, and Africa over the last decade. Emma has also taught archaeology, archaeological science, and archaeological field and survey techniques to students at UQ and in Africa. She has been involved in large cross-institutional research projects seeking to better quantify bone surface modifications on fossil bones using 3D geometric morphometrics, which has allowed her to work at and with researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Human Evolution, Harvard, Dartmouth, Emory University, and Arizona State University. Emma has an extensive track record of delivering conference presentations and has attended numerous conferences, both nationally and internationally.
