Elizabeth A. DiGangi

Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Binghamton University, State University of New York

I am a board-certified forensic anthropologist, and do casework for local, state, and national agencies in addition to teaching and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. I have also served in a mentorship capacity for forensic scientists in the countries of Colombia (where I lived and worked for five years), Mexico, and Algeria. My research interests in forensic anthropology include developing population-specific biological profile standards, improving trauma analysis, and human rights. I am the co-editor of Research Methods in Human Skeletal Biology (Academic Press, 2013); and co-author of Forensic Taphonomy and Ecology of North American Scavengers (Academic Press, 2017).
