He’s kind of like the sleeper pick in your fantasy football league – everyone knows he’s out there but they ignore him because all the focus is […]

At Chico, I focused on forensic anthropology, and my thesis involved the use of remote recording equipment and geographic information systems to monitor and track scavenger impact to pig carcasses. After graduating I worked as an osteologist on the excavation and on-site […]

They began talking about why so much science fiction focuses on the […]
