My research explores patterns in the evolutionary history of South Asians from prehistoric to recent times, using techniques and methods in human osteology. I am particularly interested in the relationship between human dispersals, local adaptions, and affinities among Old World populations. I am involved as a Biological Anthropologist in on-going excavation projects in Sri Lanka, where prehistoric and historic human skeletal remains are being recovered.
