About the talk:

Forensic Anthropology: More Than Just Bones

Criminal justice professionals are not always aware of how an anthropologist can assist in forensic cases. In addition to the typical anthropology education, with training in human anatomy and criminal justice, the forensic anthropologist can become an integral part of death scene investigation and cold case teams. This presentation will illustrate the importance of having a forensic anthropologist assist on cases, and will provide examples of how having a background in anthropology, human anatomy, and criminal justice, should be fundamental aspects of a forensic anthropologist’s education.

About the speaker:

Dr. Fabian is a forensic anthropologist who works as a lecturer and lab director in the Human Biology division of the Anthropology Department at the University at Albany in New York. While her academic career currently focuses on human anatomy and medical topics, she is also an active member of the Cold Case Analysis Center at the College of St. Rose in Albany, NY, the American Investigative Society of Cold Cases, and a volunteer consultant with the New York State Police.
