When your passion is death-related, you often get asked about your own story, in hope of explaining the slightly spooky and creepy love for bones and skeletons, errr… may be decomposition as well (Maggots! *wink wink*).

I was always a detective fiction readers when I was just a little girl. I also was fascinated by the human anatomy simultaneously. I did want to be a Medical Examiner at some point! Yet, I started thinking I would not be after high school. Life had never been that lost, thus led me to Philosophy!

Lucky, thanks to my persistence, I still have not lost my amazement at the human body thereafter. Fast forward few years, at the end of my days in philosophy, I developed a strong interest in biological anthropology. I am fascinated by how the human body grows and develops, how it remodels after trauma, how it holds signs of our activities when we were alive. I realized, there is this one element in our body witnesses all those, and no one is studying them sufficiently: bones!

I am undergoing my training in Forensic Sciences (Human Remains- Forensic Anthropology and Forensic Archaeology). In between the years, I interned in the Miam-Dade County Medical Examiner Office, conducted bioarchaeology research with a collection in University of Warsaw, and in Cyprus. Lately, I have also been on board the  Timor-Leste Police Force for a Human Identification project.

My research tries to answer the trauma patterns on both upper and lower limbs of the modern population in Cyprus. This work blends anthropological theory, osteology, and (may be) biochemical analysis. This is my personal blog, solely for expressing my opinions, and as such, does not reflect the opinions of my affiliated institutions, all the fluffy kittens and bunnies I encountered, or all the fake skeletons I collected.

My educational background includes training in Philosophy (BA Departmental Honor, University of Oregon)-not bones related for sure, but I am proud and still in love with it , (Cultural) Anthropology (MA, CUHK) and currently in Forensic Sciences -F. Anth and F. Arch, (MSc, University of Leicester). You can find more about me and my work using:


當你的熱衷是跟「死」扯上關係時,最經常就會被問到有關自己的故事。他人都會想了解到底為甚麼會有這麼驚悚及帶點恐怖的興趣,為甚麼那麼迷戀骨頭,甚至…鋪滿屍蟲在腐化的屍體。(竊笑~)

5814941_orig從小我就是絕對的偵探迷!同時,我亦對解剖學非常者迷。坦白說,我曾經萌生要當法醫的念頭!但是在中學後,我感覺自己不能勝任。生命中的方向從未這麼迷茫過,亦因此把我帶到哲學去!

幸運地,感謝我的「硬頸」,我一直以來都沒有放棄對解剖學的迷戀。在接近大學哲學系畢業時,體質人類學重新點燃了我心中的那團火(未要爆住,不過…)。我覺得人類因於不同生長環境下而身體於生長上的改變,創傷後的癒合過程,甚至可以告訴我們生前的活動痕跡。我發現,在這麼多研究當中,竟然有一個證人明明見證住以上所有種種,卻沒有足夠的人去花心思研究、解讀它,「骨頭」。

我現在在接受法醫人類學及法醫考古學的培訓。在此之前,我曾於邁亞密的殮房實習,於塞浦路斯及波蘭華沙大學的生物考古學部門做研究。最近,我更加入了東帝汶警察局的身份辨認計劃。

我的研究項目主要希望解釋現代塞浦路斯人四肢創傷分佈模式。這個研究涉獵了人類學理論、人骨學,及(或許)生化分析。此為我個人博客,所作的言論純屬個人意見,跟我相關的機構及機關、所有我碰過的可愛小貓小兔、或我一路收集的假骨頭,都沒有任何關係。

我的學習背景包括,哲學系學士(學系榮譽畢業)-雖然跟骨頭沒關係,但我依然自豪,哈!文化人類學(文學碩士,香港中文大學),及現時的法醫人類學及法醫考古學研究生。歡迎以以下途徑去了解更多:
