Vanessa Campanacho, Ph.D.

Hello and thank you for taking time to visit my website. As a 2016 Ph.D. graduate, my research focused on the possible influence that body size has on the bone degeneration rate at the pelvic joints.

Currently, I reside in New York, as a research associate at the American Museum of Natural History. I am also a research associate of the Research Centre for Anthropology and Health (CIAS) and the Group of Science for People & the Planet, Forensic Anthropology and Paleobiology in the Centre for Functional Ecology (CEF) at the University of Coimbra, Portugal.

I am passionate in performing research related to curatorial practices. I am intrigued with the ethical implications resulting from the online dissemination of 3D images of skeletal remains.

I possess extensive experience in the study of age of death estimation. I am skilled in investigating which factors may influence adult bone degeneration with age.

My research work includes the study of age estimation of immature individuals; paleopathological analysis of skeletal remains; analysis of cremated bone; and three-dimensional scanning. Please click on the Home tab on the top of the screen to obtain more information regarding my work in the subsection entitled research.

I am eager to participate in new research and curation opportunities. If you would be interested in a research collaboration, please feel free to contact me. Thank you and be well.

Looking Forward to Future Research and Museum Collaborations
