I’m Charlotte Primeau, Biological Anthropologist, Medical Researcher and Radiographer. My blog posts are about science subjects on all matters for the enjoyment of lay people, students, curious folks and scientists who want an easy read – hope you enjoy!

I have a BSc in forensic anthropology, a MSc in human identification, a MSc in diagnostic radiography and a PhD in forensic medicine and anthropology. While I trained as a radiographer I also worked in research about prostate cancer. Since I trained as a radiographer, I have been working for the NHS in Scotland. Before my training in diagnostic radiography, I worked as an anthropologist at the institute of forensic medicine in Copenhagen, where I performed CT scans and dental imaging of human remains.

I have also worked with imaging of archeological human remains for the National Museum of Denmark and for the National Museum of the Faroe Islands and acquired dental images of archeological juvenile remains in the Netherlands. I have taught research methods, statistics and guest lectured on the application of medical imaging of archeological human remains and have been published numerous times including in Nature and Science.
