Gabriella Martinez Bio

Gabriella Martinez

I received my Bachelor of Science in Anthropology from Texas State University in 2013 and my Master of Art in Anthropology from the University of Hawaii-Manoa in 2015. I am a biological anthropologist with research interests in human biological variation, forensic anthropology, bioarchaeology, paleopathology, trauma, and taphonomy. Some of my current research interests include examining human migrations and sex and ancestry estimation within forensic anthropology, more specifically addressing problems with identification of Hispanic individuals. I have additional research interests in human biological variation, especially as it relates to growth and development patterns, and the identification of disease and trauma in order to better understand the health profiles of modern, historic, and archaeological populations.
