Tooth Diaries: The Tales Told by Teeth in Bioarchaeology
Dr. Gamble is a biological anthropologist who studies the skeletal remains of past peoples to learn about patterns in health and stress. Her special focus is on what can be learned from teeth, which can capture life events during growth and development (rather like tree rings).
She is interested in understanding how early life experiences relate to health later in life from human skeletal remains. Her research incorporates microscopic imaging, ancient pathogen DNA, and virtual 3D recording. She has done work in Manitoba, the UK, Denmark, and Austria.
There will be time for questions at the end if you would like more information about her career or research!
