Research Interests

Dr. DelPreteā€™s research interests focus on modern evolution and human variation. She has amassed skeletal data from four identified skeletal collections in order to examine change in pelvic measures over the last two hundred years to get a better understanding of pelvic change through the course of human evolution. In addition, she is particularly interested in how the modern skeleton continues to change with changes in the environment.
