Prof Maryna Steyn
is a Forensic / Physical Anthropologist, and heads the Forensic Anthropology Research Centre (FARC). Her research interests include skeletal remains from both forensic and archaeological contexts. Currently she is working on a SANPAD-funded project to document and assess human remains of southern African origin which had been exported to Europe and elsewhere in the world. Other interests include assessment of sexual dimorphism in the skeleton, improvement of standards for personal identification from decomposed remains, application of techniques such as geometric morphometrics in skeletal assessment and palaeopathology. FARC regularly consults to the SAPS on decomposed or skeletonised remains found in forensic contexts.
