Emily Niespodziewanski joined the graduate program in the Department of Anthropology at Michigan State University in fall 2010. She is a doctoral student in physical anthropology with a focus on forensic anthropology under Dr. Todd W. Fenton, Professor of Anthropology and Director of the MSU Forensic Anthropology Laboratory (find the lab on Facebook and Twitter).
She plans to write her dissertation on the MSU Nubian Bioarchaeological Collection, a medieval/Christian period cemetery collection from Mis Island in the fourth cataract of the Nile river in modern Sudan. This collection was excavated by the British Museum as part of the Merowe Dam Salvage Project.
Her specific interests in forensic anthropology center on the positive identification of human remains. Under Dr. Todd Fenton, she plans to earn a doctorate in anthropology with related expertise developed through extra-dissertation labwork, casework, and research.
