Amy Michael is a biological anthropologist and Director of the Forensic Anthropology Identification and Recovery Lab (F.A.I.R. Lab) at UNH. She is interested in gender identity and diversity in forensic casework, human bone and tooth histology, search and recovery methods in northern New England, and collaborative approaches to resolving unidentified cold cases. With training in bioarchaeology, forensic anthropology and historical archaeology, Amy has worked on archaeological field projects in the United States, Belize and Albania. She is increasingly working with experts outside of anthropology (e.g., anatomists, psychologists, professional writers/researchers, and genealogists) to investigate challenging cases with long postmortem intervals, gender diverse decedents, and/or few remaining skeletal elements for analysis.
