Dr Heather Bonney Profile:
I’m the Collections Manager responsible for the human remains (comprised of approximately 20,000 individuals) and Anthropology collections, and manage the Anthropology curatorial team. I also manage the Human Remains Data Collection Project which aims to record a standardised data set from the collection, including microCT and laser scans, for the facilitation of research. I’m a practicing Forensic Anthropologist, specialising in the identification and analysis of human remains in criminal and civil cases. I’m also regularly involved in science communication activities such as Crime Scene Live and run the @NHM_Forensics Twitter account. I contribute lectures to a number of undergraduate and postgraduate university programmes. My research interests lie in the field of Forensic Anthropology, particularly in the analysis of trauma, morphology of tool marks and mechanical properties in human bone. I’m a member of the Steering Committee for the British Association for Forensic Anthropology and the Board of Trustees of the British Association for Biological Anthropology and Osteology.
