Sara M. Getz


I hold a BS in Biological Anthropology from Penn State University and an MS in Biological and Forensic Anthropology from Mercyhurst University. I have recently defended my dissertation at Penn State and will continue on in the department as a Postdoc in 2017-2018. My dissertation focuses on the development, validation, and application of an improved method of adult age-at-death estimation for human skeletons using Transition Analysis and a large suite of traits distributed throughout the skeleton.
